England Cricket Board (ECB) on Wednesday has announced the squad for the One-Day International series against India. Alastair Cook is set to lead the English side.

They will also have the services of controversial batsman Kevin Pietersen who is set to make a comeback to limited-overs cricket after being ignored by the selectors following the text-message controversy earlier in the year. Pietersen had announced retirement from limited-overs cricket earlier in the year.

James Anderson will be in the squad for the warm-up fixtures and first three ODI matches only. He will be replaced by Stuart Broad for the remainder for the five-match series.

Squad:

Alastair Cook (C), Briggs, Jonathan Bairstow, Ian Bell, James Dernbach, Steven Finn, Craig Kieswetter, Stuart Meaker, Eoin Morgan, Samit Patel, Kevin Pietersen, James Tredwell, Jonathan Trott, James Anderson, Stuart Broad
