Tymal Mills has been selected in the England squad for the upcoming Twenty/20 encounters in India.

The former Mildenhall and Tuddenham bowler, who currently turns out for Sussex, made his one and only senior international appearance in July against Sri Lanka.

The domestic season has ended in England, but Mills has spent the last few weeks playing the shortest format of the game in Bangladesh and New Zealand.

His performances have impressed the national selectors, who have included the 24-year-old among their 15-man party.

“Thanks for the messages. Looking forward to my first trip to India and hopefully representing @englandcricket again,” he tweeted.

The first of three T/20 games will take place in Kanpur on January 26, before moving on to Nagpur (January 29) and Bengaluru (February 1).
