The Cricket Board in England and Wales (ECB) confirmed the 15-strong team for a next world-cup ICC T20 and two-game series T20I against Pakistan on September 9.
Tymal Mills was also named in the team of England bowling. As part of the World XI versus West Indies, he played his last T20I in 2018.
Chris Silverwood, the head coach of the English Men’s team, claimed that this year’s T20 Blast and the Hundred showed that Mills were better performing, because of which he was recognised in the team.
“Tymal Mills merits its participation and has shown, during the last several years, that he has all his skills in succeeding at this level especially during the summer,” Silverwood added.
“His remarkable quickness is remarkable and the way he spoke in the short-form match of Susex and Southern Brave shows he enjoys the pressures of the big stadium. We can’t expect him to play in a major international competition. It will give variation to our bowling team.”
Instead of Jofra Archer will be Mills, who was sidelined for a year because of his elbow injury.
However, Ben Stokes will not be on their sides, the biggest loss for England. For a time now, he was away from cricket to concentrate on his mental welfare.
The UAE spun-friendly pits will have an edge for Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali.
All-rounder Liam Livingstone will help these bowlers.
The left-arm pacers Sam Curran and David Wiley will join Chris Jordan and Mark Wood.
This time England will hopefully be the best rider of the 2016 men’s T20 World Cup. On 23 October they will begin their journey to West Indies, defending champions.

England is now in first place in the T20I ranking, having won the 2019 men’s Cricket World Cup. This year, they are going to add another prize to their fame hall.
“We are pleased because the ICC T20 World Cup is a challenge,” Silverwood added. “I think we have picked a band which has all the basics and the profile to succeed in a very difficult event which is likely to feature the world’s greatest players.”
