London: Uncapped Gloucestershire batsman James Bracey and Sussex seamer Ollie Robinson have been included in England's 15-man squad for two Tests against New Zealand, which begin on 2 June.
There is also a recall for Somerset's Craig Overton, who last played in 2019.
Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes, Sam Curran, Moeen Ali and Jonny Bairstow have been left out after only recently returning from the Indian Premier League.
Ben Stokes (broken finger) and Jofra Archer (elbow injury) are also absent.
Opener Dom Sibley, who has missed recent Warwickshire games with a fractured finger, has been included, as has Rory Burns, who was dropped for the final two Tests in England's 3-1 series defeat in India over the winter.
Jack Leach is the sole spinner in the squad, with Dom Bess left out, while Ben Foakes is set to keep in England for the first time in Buttler's absence.
