Sussex's Mills - who has been restricted to T20 cricket for the past year by a congenital back condition - is a fast bowler capable of bowling in excess of 90mph, while Middlesex batsman Malan has impressed for England Lions.

England coach Trevor Bayliss said he liked the "pace and unpredictability" of Mills.

Hampshire's Dawson, who bowls slow left-arm, was a surprise inclusion in England's World T20 squad earlier this year but did not play.

Test bowling spearheads James Anderson and Stuart Broad have not been selected for either squad despite indicating their availability.
