Australia has unveiled its 16-player squad for the upcoming men’s T20 series against Sri Lanka, with Ashes hero Travis Head named in the national 20-over outfit for the first time in nearly four years.

Big Bash star Ben McDermott could be given an extended run at the top of Australia’s T20 batting line-up next month, with star opener David Warner to miss the five-match Dettol T20I Series against Sri Lanka.

Fast bowler Jhye Richardson as well as Travis Head and Moises Henriques have also earned recalls to Australia’s 16-player squad having missed last year’s T20 World Cup win in the UAE.

World Cup heroes Warner and Mitchell Marsh will both miss the series ahead of the three-format tour of Pakistan that is scheduled to begin in March, while head coach Justin Langer will also take planned leave ahead of the Pakistan trip.

Assistant coach Andrew McDonald will act as head coach for the Sri Lanka series, which will run from February 11 to 20 and feature matches in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne.

Australia T20 squad: Aaron Finch (c), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Moises Henriques, Josh Inglis, Ben McDermott, Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, Adam Zampa
