Ben Stokes will make his first Twenty20 comeback for England against Pakistan, but James Vince and Liam Dawson have been left out of the squad for a one-off match on September 7.

All-rounder Stokes has not played for his country in the shortest format since Carlos Brathwaite smashed him for four sixes in a dramatic final over of the World Twenty20 final in April to give West Indies an astonishing win.

Stokes missed the eight-wicket win over Sri Lanka in July, but will be back in action at Old Trafford after playing his part in the one-day international series triumph over Pakistan.

Paceman Mark Wood also returns after recovering from injury to impress with the ball in the ODI series, which England lead 3-0 with two games still to play.

Out-of-form batsman Vince was omitted from the ODI squad after a poor Test series and has also been overlooked for the T20 in Manchester along with Hampshire team-mate Dawson.

Jonny Bairstow and Dawid Malan also miss out, but Alex Hales - who smashed England's highest ODI total of 177 in a victory at Trent Bridge on Tuesday in which Eoin Morgan's side posted a world-record 444-3 - returns along with Moeen Ali and Joe Root after all three were rested for the win over Sri Lanka.

England squad:

Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Tymal Mills, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, David Willey, Mark Wood.
