Stokes, Woakes to miss Aussie ODIs

Stokes, Woakes to miss Aussie ODIs

Stokes, the influential allrounder who is in the middle of a prolonged run of on and off-field misfortune, sustained the injury ahead of the second Test against Pakistan earlier this month, and had already been ruled out of the ongoing One-Day International series against Australia.

That remains a possibility as the Durham star will travel with the squad selected for those three matches and the preceding one-off Twenty20 fixture against Australia, which will follow the ongoing one-day worldwide series, at Edgbaston on June 27.

Apart from the brothers, Jake Ball, Jonny Bairstow, and all-rounder Moeen Ali have been named in the squad as well.

Middlesex batsman Dawid Malan was a surprising omission given he has four fifties in just five T20 global appearances including two in succession in England's most recent matches in New Zealand.

However, England selectors left out Mark Wood, Dawid Malan, Sam Billings, Liam Dawson and James Vince.

Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow and Moeen Ali all come back for the series after earning a rest in the tri-series down under.

Experienced all-rounders Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes both miss out, meaning that the Currans have a strong chance of appearing in the series. "A date for return can not be specified at this stage, but he will not be available before the India Royal London ODI series", a statement from European Central Bank read as.

The England and Wales Cricket Board attached a brief statement to the squad announcement.

The 27-year-old will work alongside the England squad as he continues his rehabilitation.

Stokes and Woakes were already expected to miss the remaining three games of the five-match one day series against Australia.

Stokes's involvement in the games was unlikely as he is still recovering from a torn left hamstring.

The squad has several changes from Bangladesh's last Test series in February against Sri Lanka at home which they lost 1-0.
