Sam Curran will join his brother Tom in the England T20 international squad to face West Indies after being named as a replacement for Moeen Ali.

Moeen was initially selected in the party to take on the Windies, but the all-rounder will leave the tour at the end of the ODI series.

Curran, uncapped in the shortest format, comes in after he was overlooked for the ODIs. The all-rounder played in two of the three Tests in the series defeat in the Caribbean and has made two ODI appearances.

England and West Indies are level at 1-1 in the ODI series after the third match in Grenada was washed out without a ball being bowled on Monday.
