IW CRICKETER Danny Briggs has been named in England's one-day and Twenty20 squads for their matches against Australia next month.

Briggs, who played for Ventnor for many years before becoming a permanent fixture in Hampshire's line-up, is one of 16 players picked for the two series, which start on January 12.

Briggs has been in Australia with the England Performance Programme squad, which has shadowed the full England team as they attempt to retain The Ashes.

He is one of two spin bowlers in the squad, alongside James Tredwell.
