Sussex star George Garton has been called into England’s squad for a five-match Twenty20 series against the West Indies in Barbados next month.

The fast bowler turned all-rounder from Brighton is rewarded for progress with his county as well as in franchise cricket here and overseas.

Fellow left-armer David Payne is also called in.

With the fifth Ashes Test set to finish in Hobart just four days before the first T20 in the Caribbean on January 22, no England player currently attempting to regain the urn in Australia has been considered for selection.

Former Sussex opener Phil Salt could make his first T20 appearance for England.

England squad to face the West Indies in five T20s from January 22-30: E Morgan (captain), M Ali, T Banton, S Billings, L Dawson, G Garton, C Jordan, L Livingstone, S Mahmood, T Mills, D Payne, A Rashid, J Roy, P Salt, R Topley, J Vince.
