Meanwhile, Test captain Joe Root surprisingly has been named to play in both Twenty20 and the 50-over games even though the short-form represents his only chance for a rest in a schedule that is bursting at the seams.

However, the 20-year-old Hampshire leg-spinner Mason Crane who impressed in limited- overs games against South Africa earlier in the summer, has surprisingly been omitted from both squads.

To be noted, the five-match ODI series is scheduled to start on 19 September.

T20I Squad: Eoin Morgan (c), Jonny Bairstow, Jake Ball, Jos Buttler (wk), Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, David Willey.
