England, T20 World Cup 2022 squad: Jos Buttler will lead the 15-member squad which has omitted opener Jason Roy.

England has announced its T20 World Cup 2022 squad to be held in Australia in October on Friday.

Jos Buttler will lead the 15-member squad which has omitted opener Jason Roy after a run of poor form. England is the second team to announce its World Cup squad after Australia which announced its team on Thursday.

Later in the evening, however, a freak injury ruled out batter Jonny Bairstow from the squad. England is yet to announce a replacement.

England lost to New Zealand in the semifinal of the T20 World Cup last year in the UAE.

England last won the T20 World Cup in 2010 - its first ICC trophy - under the leadership of Paul Collingwood. Kevin Pietersen was adjudged the player of the tournament for scoring 248 runs.

It also made the final in 2016 where it faced a heartbreaking loss in the last over of the game. Carlos Brathwaite hit four consecutive sixes off Ben Stokes to get the required 24 runs from the last over.

England also announced a 19-member squad for the tour to Pakistan later this month. This will be the first time England will play cricket in Pakistan in 17 years.
