Paul Collingwood will be England's head coach for the five T20I series against West Indies early next year, ESPNcricinfo reported on Tuesday. Chris Silverwood will be on a short break, having been on the road from the Men's T20 World Cup last month.

Collingwood, who was also with the national side from the multi-team tournament, returned home last week and will travel to Barbados after Christmas. The series will start from January 22, four day after the fifth Ashes Test ends.

As a result, most Ashes players would miss out and the likes of Sam Billings and George Garton, who are plying their trade in the Big Bash League may get a look in.
