Ben Stokes left out of England T20 squad

All-rounder Ben Stokes is omitted from the England squad to face Australia and India.

All-rounder Ben Stokes has been left out of the England squad for their Twenty20 internationals against Australia and India.

Mark Wood has also been rested for the four matches, but brothers Tom and Sam Curran have made the cut and bowler Jake Ball has earned a recall.

Batsman Jonny Bairstow and all-rounder Moeen Ali, who were rested for the winter T20 matches, have also returned to the 14-man lineup.

Stokes's involvement in the games was unlikely as he is still recovering from a torn left hamstring.

The 27-year-old will join up with his teammates while he continues his return to match fitness.

England squad in full: Eoin Morgan (Middlesex, captain), Moeen Ali (Worcestershire), Jonny Bairstow (Yorkshire), Jake Ball (Nottinghamshire), Jos Buttler (Lancashire), Sam Curran (Surrey), Tom Curran (Surrey), Alex Hales (Nottinghamshire), Chris Jordan (Sussex), Liam Plunkett (Yorkshire), Adil Rashid (Yorkshire), Joe Root (Yorkshire), Jason Roy (Surrey), David Willey (Yorkshire)
