Ben Stokes will continue his recovery from injury with England having not been included in their 14-man squad for their Vitality IT20 matches against Australia and India.

Cumbrian all-rounder Stokes was not named in today's squad which does contain the uncapped Sam Curran who made his Test debut at Headingley this month.

England announced yesterday the hamstring tear 27-year-old Stokes suffered before that Test against Pakistan was "progressing well", and it was hoped he may be able to play in the three-match Twenty20 series, starting against India on July 3.

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

The England and Wales Cricket Board attached a brief statement to the squad announcement.

It read: "Durham seamer Mark Wood is rested.

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