KXIP vs KKR Live Score

England Twenty20 squad: Eoin Morgan (capt), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Jake Ball, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, David Willey. Woakes sustained a tear in his right quad during the second Test against Pakistan in Leeds, but an European Central Bank statement suggested it was caused in part by "a flare-up of a chronic right knee problem".

Experienced all-rounders Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes both miss out, meaning that the Currans have a strong chance of appearing in the series.

The same 14-man squad will do duty in a one-off T20I against Australia in Birmingham on June 27.

Meanwhile, there was no place in the side for Sam Billings, Dawid Malan, Liam Dawson and James Vince, all of whom were part of the squad for the T20 tri-series against Australia and New Zealand earlier this year.

"All-rounder Ben Stokes will be with the squad throughout the series as he continues his rehabilitation from his torn left hamstring".

Durham seamer Mark Wood is rested, ahead of the three-match ODI series against India that follows in July.

Jul 08, Bristol: England v India, 3rd T20 (1300).

Stokes is now recovering from a torn left hamstring, which he sustained in the lead-up to the second Test against Pakistan at Headingley.

That option still appears possible, because the key all-rounder will travel with the squad chosen for those three matches and the one-off fixture against Australia which will follow the ongoing one-day global series - at Edgbaston on June 27.

Right-arm paceman Abu Jayed, who has played three Twenty20 internationals, earned his maiden call-up to the Test squad.
