London, Jun 21 : England has recalled wicketkeeper Craig Kieswetter and allrounder Samit Patel to its squad for the forthcoming Twenty20 match and one-day international series against Sri Lanka.


Test wicketkeeper Matt Prior, who was part of England's World Cup squad on the subcontinent, makes way for the return of Kieswetter, a big-hitting batsman who opens the innings.

The last of Patel's 11 one-day caps came in November 2008 but he has worked hard to improve his fitness levels as he sought a way back into the international reckoning.

Former limited-overs captain Paul Collingwood wasn't included in either squad after only recently returning from a knee injury.

Alastair Cook will captain the ODI side, with Stuart Broad in charge of the T20 team. AP
