Fast bowler Reece Topley has been kept in the reserves for the series while all-rounder Lewis Gregory and fast bowler Chris Jordan have been included in the squad.

"In this crowded international summer, players who are at present, in the Test match bio-secure bubble for the Pakistan Test series are not included in this squad. The T20 Is begin three days after the scheduled last day of the final Test. We want to give multi-format players some opportunity to rest and refresh, while still selecting strong squads for every series. We will announce the squad for the Australia T20 series at a later date," said National Selector Ed Smith.

England squad: Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Tom Banton, Sam Billings, Tom Curran, Joe Denly, Lewis Gregory, Chris Jordan, Saqib Mahmood, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy and David Willey.
