Chris Woakes has been ruled out of England’s first one-day international of the summer against Scotland next weekend.
Woakes left the field late in England’s series-levelling Test win over Pakistan at Headingley on Sunday with a thigh injury and will join Ben Stokes on the sidelines.
Surrey’s Tom Curran will take his place in the squad.
A brief ECB statement read: “Chris Woakes has been ruled out of the Scotland ODI with tightness in his right quad.
“He is replaced in the squad by Surrey’s Tom Curran.
“Woakes will be assessed this week to ascertain if he’ll be fit for the Australia series.”
Woakes’ participation in the five-match Royal London Series against Australia is therefore uncertain – as is that of Stokes after he missed the Leeds Test with a hamstring tear.
