YORKSHIRE bowler Matthew Fisher has been selected to play in this year's North v South limited-overs series.

The Sheriff Hutton Bridge paceman is in the 13-strong North squad alongside the likes of England international Ben Duckett, who has been chosen despite his recent disciplinary issues.

The Northamptonshire batsman received a final written warning over his conduct and was fined after pouring a drink over England's leading wicket-taker James Anderson at a Perth bar in December.

Duckett was also dropped for the Lions' tour of West Indies in February and March but will be part of a North squad looking for revenge in Barbados after suffering a 3-0 whitewash in the inaugural series last year.

New Nottinghamshire skipper Steven Mullaney will captain the North side, which will be coached by former England all-rounder Paul Collingwood, for the three matches at the Kensington Oval on March 18, 21 and 23.

Kent batsman Sam Northeast hit a century in the second game of the 2017 series and will return to lead the South team, who will be overseen by England batting coach Mark Ramprakash.

England internationals Keaton Jennings and Liam Dawson will be on opposing teams but Yorkshire captain Gary Ballance has chosen to concentrate on his county commitments.

National selector James Whitaker said: "We believe these are two exciting squads which again underline the value of this North v South series as an opportunity for us to see some strong contenders for white-ball cricket playing at a higher level of competition and intensity."

North squad: Steven Mullaney (Nottinghamshire), Sam Hain (Warwickshire), Ben Duckett (Northamptonshire), Joe Clarke (Worcestershire), Keaton Jennings (Lancashire), Brett D'Oliveira (Worcestershire), Alex Davies (Lancashire), Paul Coughlin (Nottinghamshire), Matt Fisher (Yorkshire), Saqib Mahmood (Lancashire), Richard Gleeson (Northamptonshire), Zak Chappell (Leicestershire), Matt Parkinson (Lancashire).
