The England Men’s selection panel has picked a squad of 15 for the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, which will be held in Australia beginning in October.
Dawid Malan is called up after impressing in England’s recent series against South Africa. This year, the left-hander has a strike rate of 148.27 in T20Is and is Morgan’s like-for-like replacement. He is also The Hundred’s current leading run-scorer, with 358 runs at 59.66.
Jos Buttler, who succeeded Eoin Morgan, who announced his retirement from international cricket earlier this year, is leading the squad in its first major competition.
Seam bowlers Chris Woakes and Mark Wood have both made the squads for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup and the IT20 tour of Pakistan in September after overcoming their respective injuries.
Both players last played for England during the Test tour of the West Indies back in March.
