Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes will play no part in England's Twenty20 matches with Australia and India as they continue to recover from injuries.

Both men had already been ruled out of the remaining three ODI matches between England and Australia, and their period of absence has now been extended.

Stokes is recovering from a torn hamstring, while Woakes has a knee injury that injections have failed to ease.

Bowler Mark Wood is also left out of the 14-man squad to rest, his place taken by the returning Jake Ball.

Brothers Tom and Sam Curran are included for the sole match against Australia later this month, and three T20s against India in July.


England T20 squad: Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Jake Ball, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, David Willey
