Roy is dropped from the England T20 World Cup squad, while Woakes and Wood are welcomed back for the competition.

In their team for the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia starting next month, England welcomed back fit-again seamers Chris Woakes and Mark Wood while dropping out-of-sorts opener Jason Roy.

Roy has been a crucial member of England's white-ball team, and in 2019, when they won their first World Cup in 50 overs, his explosive hitting at the top of the order epitomised the team's aggressive strategy

Woakes and Wood have both recovered from their injuries to be included in both teams. They last competed for England during the test tour of the West Indies in March.

Chris Jordan (finger) and Liam Livingstone (ankle) are members of the World Cup team but will miss the Pakistan trip to focus on their recovery, according to a statement from the England and Wales Cricket Board

Jos Buttler, the captain, will go to Pakistan while nursing a calf injury, but he won't be ready to participate until later in the series

Moeen Ali will lead the team without Buttler as captain, according to the ECB. The five uncapped players picked in the England team for the Pakistan series

Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Harry Brook, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Phil Salt, Ben Stokes, Reece Topley, David Willey, Chris Woakes, and Mark Wood make up the T20 World Cup roster.
