England have announced squads for the T20 International (T20I) and Test series for the tour of New Zealand. Many receive maiden call-ups, but Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy are the notable absentees from the Test and T20I squads respectively. Jos Buttler will takeover as the wicketkeeper in Tests, while Bairstow will don the gloves in T20Is in Buttler’s absence.

 Eoin Morgan returns as captain after a memorable summer, where he led England to ICC Men’s World Cup glory in July. Tom Banton and Saqib Mahmood earn their first England call-ups after standout white-ball summers. Banton hit 549 runs for Somerset in the Vitality Blast – second most in the tournament behind teammate Babar Azam, while Lancashire’s Mahmood added eight T20 wickets to his competition-leading 28 in the Royal London One-Day Cup.

Worcestershire seamer Pat Brown and Lancashire spinner Matthew Parkinson also receive their first call-ups. James Anderson’s is still yet to attain full fitness after suffering a calf injury during the first Ashes Test and has not been considered, but he is on the radar for the South Africa tour. However, Lancashire duo of Saqib Mahmood and Matt Parkinson have received call-ups to the Test squad. 

Warwickshire opener Dominic Sibley is rewarded for his remarkable summer with a first England call-up. The 24-year-old had accumulated 1,324 Specsavers County Championship runs going into the final round of fixtures, including an unbeaten double century and another century in the second innings against Nottinghamshire last week. Kent’s Zak Crawley is also included after a promising summer at the top of the order. 

The two Tests against New Zealand do not form part of the ICC World Test Championship. 

Test squad: Joe Root (c), Jofra Archer, Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler (wk), Zak Crawley, Sam Curran, Joe Denly, Jack Leach, Saqib Mahmood, Matt Parkinson, Ollie Pope, Dominic Sibley, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes 

T20I squad: Eoin Morgan (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Tom Banton, Sam Billings, Pat Brown, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Denly, Lewis Gregory, Chris Jordan, Saqib Mahmood, Dawid Malan, Matt Parkinson, Adil Rashid, James Vince
