Briggs dropped by England
Danny Briggs has been dumped from England's World Twenty20 squad.
The Hampshire slow left-armer has paid the price for last week's performance against Australia in Hobart, where he conceded 53 from his four overs.
Kent off-spinner James Tredwell and uncapped Lancashire slow left-armer Stephen Parry are in the 15-man squad instead. Joe Root and Moeen Ali also provide off-spin options.
Hampshire's dynamic opening batsmen, Michael Carberry and James Vince, missed the cut after being included in the provisional 30-man squad announced three weeks ago.
Carberry has also been left out of the ODI squad that plays the West Indies in the Caribbean later this month.
England World Twenty20 squad: Broad (Nottinghamshire-captain), Morgan (Middlesex - vice captain), Ali (Worcestershire), Bopara (Essex), Bresnan (Yorkshire), Buttler (Lancashire), Dernbach (Surrey), Hales (Nottinghamshire), Jordan (Sussex), Lumb (Nottinghamshire), Parry (Lancashire), Root (Yorkshire), Stokes (Durham), Tredwell (Kent), Wright (Sussex).
