The selectors recalled fast bowler Mills for the first time since February 2017

All-rounder Ben Stokes Thursday was not included in England's 15-man preliminary squad for the Twenty20 World Cup as he continues to take a break from cricket to focus on his mental health, the England and Wales Cricket Board said.

The ECB added that the 30-year old, who was a key player for the side in their 50-over World Cup triumph two years ago, was unavailable for selection for the tournament that kicks off next month in the United Arab Emirates and Oman.

The selectors recalled fast bowler Tymal Mills for the first time since February 2017 following his impressive performances in the Vitality T20 Blast and The Hundred.

There was no place for Test skipper Joe Root, who earlier this year expressed a desire to make a comeback in the shortest format.

Injured paceman Jofra Archer was also not included.

England take on the West Indies in their opener on Oct. 23 in Dubai.

Squad

Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Jonathan Bairstow, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Tymal Mills, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood

Reserves: Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, James Vince
