Sussex left-arm fast bowler Tymal Mills has been named in England's T20 squad for their one-off game against Sri Lanka at the Ageas Bowl on 5 July. The 23-year-old is capable of bowling in excess of 90mph and has earned his first international call-up on the back of his impressive form in the NatWest T20 Blast competition.
Mills, who is restricted to T20 action because of past injury troubles, is joined in the squad by Middlesex's stylish batsman Dawid Malan. The left-hander impressed the England hierarchy with his impressive performances against Pakistan A in the UAE, where he scored 253 runs at 50.60 and a strike rate of 131.77 in the five T20s.
Malan is likely to open the batting alongside Jason Roy after the selectors opted to rest Alex Hales for the T20 match. Among the other players rested for the one-off game at the Ageas Bowl are Joe Root and Moeen Ali, while the in-form Jonny Bairstow has been chosen in both squads.
"Tymal Mills has been one of the standout performers with the ball in the NatWest T20 Blast competition this season and deserves his chance," said James Whitaker, the national selector, in a statement.
"Dawid Malan has made great strides as an attacking batsman, both with Middlesex and the England Lions. We were particularly impressed with his three fifties during the winter tour of the UAE against Pakistan A."
Meanwhile, Ben Stokes (knee) and Reece Topley (back) after missing from both squads because of injuries, while James Taylor, who has been a key member of England's ODI squad in recent months, has been forced to retire.
