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 – the 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 white ball call-ups.

Warwickshire opener Dominic Sibley is rewarded for his remarkable summer with a first England call-up to the Test squad.

The 24-year-old had accumulated 1,324 Specsavers County Championship runs going into the final round of fixtures, including an unbeaten double century. Kent’s Zak Crawley is also included after a promising summer at the top of the order.

Lancashire duo Saqib Mahmood and Matt Parkinson also receive call-ups to the Test squad.

James Anderson was unavailable for selection in the Test squad as he continues his rehabilitation from a calf injury. The Lancashire seamer will work towards being available for the South Africa tour later this winter.
