Uncapped left-arm seamer David Payne has earned a maiden call-up to England’s T20I squad for the West Indies series. England’s 16-strong squad will be led by Eoin Morgan for the five-match series. Payne, 30, was named in England’s ODI squad earlier this year after the first-choice squad had to isolate ahead of the series against Pakistan. The Gloucestershire seamer didn’t feature in that series but enjoyed a decent domestic campaign, taking 12 wickets from 9 games at an economy rate of 8.83. He also snared six wickets in the inaugural season of The Hundred playing for the Welsh Fire.
