All-rounder Moeen Ali and Ben Stokes have been rested for England cricket team’s lone T20I against the West Indies on September 16 at the Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street.
The pair will return for the ODI series which begins in Manchester three days later.
Middlesex batsman Dawid Malan, who impressed with a half-century on his T20 debut against South Africa this summer, has also been included in the 14-man T20 squad.
However, the most notable omission from both lists is right-arm pacer Mark Wood, who was a central figure in England’s Champions Trophy squad but who has since suffered with a heel injury which interrupted his Test summer and has kept him out of action since mid-July.
The Caribbean side are due to play a T20I and five ODIs after their three-match Test series gets over on September 11. The tournament is evenly poised at 1-1 after West Indies pulled off an upset win in the second Test at Headingley, Leeds.
England T20 squad: Eoin Morgan (captain), Jonathan Bairstow, Jake Ball, Jos Buttler, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy and David Willey.
