Richard Gleeson, the Lancashire seamer, has earned his first full England call-up at the age of 34 and could make his debut in next week’s T20I series against India.

Gleeson, a late developer who made his first-class debut at 27, spent most of the last two seasons sidelined by back injuries and signed a T20-only contract with Lancashire for the Blast this year. He has played every game and taken 20 wickets, the joint-most of an England-qualified bowler, despite combining his playing commitments with a teaching job.
