Sri Lanka in England 2021

Woakes returns to England T20 squad after six years

Birmingham: All-rounder Chris Woakes returns to the England Twenty20 squad for the first time since 2015 for three matches against Sri Lanka this month.

Warwickshire's Woakes, 32, played the most recent of his eight T20 internationals in 2015.

Yorkshire seamer David Willey, 31, also features in a 16-man squad, having last played a T20 for England in May 2019.

Sophia Gardens hosts the first two T20s on 23 and 24 June, and the Ageas Bowl the final match on 26 June.

All-rounder Ben Stokes is absent with a fractured finger, Jofra Archer has an elbow injury and fellow pace bowler Reece Topley has a side strain.

Woakes, Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler and Sam Curran were not considered for the current Test series against New Zealand as they were rested after having to quarantine following the postponed Indian Premier League.

England T20 squad:
Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jonathan Bairstow, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler (WK), Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood
