Injured Woakes ruled out of ODI against Scotland

Chris Woakes

England bowler Chris Woakes has been ruled out of Sunday’s one-day international against Scotland.

The 29-year-old, who took four wickets as England beat Pakistan to draw the Test series 1-1 on Sunday, has tightness in his right thigh and is replaced by Surrey’s Tom Curran.

Woakes will be assessed this week to see if he will be fit for the Australia ODI series which starts on 13 June.

England are already without all-rounder Ben Stokes for the Scotland game.

The 27-year-old tore his left hamstring in the build-up to the second Test against Pakistan and will also miss the the first part of the five-match series against Australia.

England ODI squad versus Scotland: Eoin Morgan, Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Sam Billings, Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, David Willey, Tom Curran, Mark Wood.
