The English selectors, on Tuesday, announced the T20I squad for the upcoming one-off fixture against Australia and a 3-match T20I series against the 2007 Champions India.

While Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes, both of whom missed the ODI series against Australia due to their respective injuries, have been ruled out of the squad, while Sam Billings has been dropped following a lean run in the past month. Sam Curran, who made his Test debut in England’s second Test win over Pakistan at Leeds, also finds a place in the squad.
