England has announced the squad for the T20 International series against India. Test team captain Joe Root is not a part of this team. The 16-man squad includes Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and David Malan, and the Karan Brothers.
Butler has returned home after the first Test match against India. England won the match by 227 runs. Bairstow has been rested from the first two Tests due to England’s rotation policy.
