Collingwood omitted

The veteran all-rounder retired from Test duty after England’s victorious Ashes campaign in Australia, but was included in the World Cup squad. However, upon his return home after England’s 10-wicket quarterfinal drubbing by Sri Lanka, Collingwood was stripped of the Twenty20 captaincy -- despite leading the side to the World Twenty20 title in the West Indies last year -- and replaced as skipper by leadership novice Stuart Broad.

Wicket-keeper Craig Kieswetter and all-rounder Samit Patel won recalls to both squads. Kiewswetter replaced Matt Prior, England’s Test gloveman who played at the World Cup. Patel, 26, won the last of his 11 ODI caps in November 2008.

Twenty20 squad: Stuart Broad (capt), Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara, Jade Dernbach, Steven Finn, Craig Kieswetter, Michael Lumb, Eoin Morgan, Samit Patel, Kevin Pietersen, Graeme Swann, Chris Woakes, Luke Wright.

One-day squad: Alastair Cook (capt), James Anderson, Bell, Bopara, Broad, Dernbach, Finn, Kieswetter, Morgan, Patel, Pietersen, Swann, Jonathan Trott, Woakes.
