Straus backs Wood for Champions Trophy

England director of cricket, Andrew Strauss has put out an opinion that seamer Mark Wood may be in contention for the Champions Trophy if he proves his fitness after a six month injury layoff which has included two operations on his left ankle.

England will have to submit their provisional 15 man squad for the Champions Trophy by the 1st of May. Strauss seems happy with Wood’s progress and is eager to get him back into the side. Apart from his limited overs comeback, Straus is keen to get Wood back into Test cricket, especially with big tours coming up for England before the upcoming Ashes to be played in Australia over winter.
