NEXT MATCH: Sussex 2nd XI vs Surrey 2nd XI

George Garton and Tymal Mills named in England T20 squad

Sussex’s George Garton and Tymal Mills have been called-up to a 16-player squad for the England men’s International Twenty20 matches against West Indies next month.

Fast-bowler Mills makes the squad once more after an impressive T20 World Cup campaign earlier this year, which saw him take seven wickets in four matches before injury forced his withdrawal.

Meanwhile, Garton is selected for the national team for the first time since his call-up to the One Day International series against Pakistan back in July, where he unfortunately had to isolate with the rest of the team without playing a match following a Coronavirus outbreak.

England will be led by stand-in coach Paul Collingwood for the five-match series, which will be played in Barbados from 22-30 January. Marcus Trescothick will join the squad as an assistant coach.

After naming the squad, Collingwood said: “We have selected a strong squad with some serious batting power and a balanced attack as we begin preparations ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia.

“The World Cup is less than a year away and there will be increased opportunities for the squad in the absence of those players who are with the Ashes squad.

“I have good memories winning a World Cup in Barbados and I’m really looking forward to going back there with this squad to face a very good West Indies who will test all aspects of our skills.”

Eoin Morgan (Middlesex – captain)
