Star bowler James Anderson is not included in England’s Twenty20 squad against West Indies – as Ian Bell replaces the retired Kevin Pietersen.

The Lancashire player will feature in the three-match one-day series later this month but has been omitted from the ODIs.

Bell, who was left out of the team that completed a 4-0 win against Pakistan, was recalled to replace Pietersen who retired last month.

National selector Geoff Miller said: "We are anticipating a very competitive series against West Indies and are looking to continue to build on the progress we made in limited overs cricket earlier this year against Pakistan.

"Kevin Pietersen's recent decision to retire from one-day cricket means we now start looking at other options available to us as we prepare to defend our ICC World Twenty20 title and look towards next year's ICC Champions Trophy and the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup."

Bell, 30, has scored 3,234 runs in 108 ODI games and made three fifties in four innings against the Windies – resulting in a series average of 111.

The first ODI takes place in Southampton on June 16 and others will be played at The Oval and Headingley.
