Both Stokes, 21, and Borthwick, 22, appeared for England in the Twenty20 match against the West Indies last year. But Onions is still to make T20 debut.

England last won the tournament when Paul Collingwood captained the side in 2010. The Three Lions will face Afghanistan in their opening match on September 21.
