Moeen Ali has been named Eoin Morgan's vice-captain for England's three-match one-day international series against Ireland.
The series will take place behind closed doors in a bio-secure bubble at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton, with the first ODI taking place on Thursday, July 30.
England's squad for the series will be confirmed next week, after two intra-squad matches (Tuesday and Friday) and an England Lions game against Ireland on Sunday.
Tuesday's first intra-squad saw Moeen lead a team in a 100-run win over Morgan, the newly-announced vice-captain playing a starring role as he hit 85 off 45 balls and took 3-40.
In other, more disappointing news for England, legspinner Matt Parkinson has been ruled out of the Ireland series after spraining his left ankle during a fielding session on Monday.
England's 24-man ODI training group: Eoin Morgan (Middlesex) captain, Moeen Ali (Worcestershire), Jonathan Bairstow (Yorkshire), Tom Banton (Somerset), Sam Billings (Kent), Henry Brookes (Warwickshire), Brydon Carse (Durham), Tom Curran (Surrey), Liam Dawson (Hampshire), Ben Duckett (Nottinghamshire), Laurie Evans (Sussex), Richard Gleeson (Lancashire), Lewis Gregory (Somerset), Sam Hain (Warwickshire), Tom Helm (Middlesex), Liam Livingstone (Lancashire), Saqib Mahmood (Lancashire), Adil Rashid (Yorkshire), Jason Roy (Surrey), Phil Salt (Sussex), Reece Topley (Surrey), James Vince (Hampshire), David Willey (Yorkshire).
