Eoin Morgan will lead an experienced ODI squad.
England selectors have announced a 14-man squad for the Royal London ODI series against Sri Lanka and a 13-man squad for the NatWest IT20 match that follows.

Eoin Morgan will lead an experienced ODI squad with all representatives having played for England at this level before. Hampshire batsman James Vince will be looking to add to his first cap received in May 2015 against Ireland in Malahide.
 

England begin the series at Trent Bridge on Tuesday 21 JuneThe IT20 squad includes two players who have yet to be capped by England at this level. Sussex pace bowler Tymal Mills, 23, is included having impressed for the Sharks in the early stages of the NatWest T20 Blast competition and Middlesex batsman Dawid Malan, who had an excellent England Lions tour earlier this year against Pakistan A in the UAE, will be hoping to be selected for the match at Hampshire’s Ageas Bowl on Tuesday 5 July. Spinner Liam Dawson is the only other player in the squad yet to be capped.

 
“The IT20 squad has a balanced feel to it with an exciting blend of youth and experience. This is our first test since reaching the final of the ICC World T20 and we know the players will want to ensure that they play well and win the match.

“This is also an opportunity, if selected, for two new players to showcase their skills at this level. Tymal Mills has been one of the standout performers with the ball in the NatWest T20 Blast competition this season and deserves his chance.
 



“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.

“On behalf of the selectors, I would like to wish Eoin Morgan and Trevor Bayliss all the very best for what I’m sure will be a very competitive and entertaining series.”
