England add Duckett and Malan for Ireland and Pakistan series
England Cricket Board (ECB) have added Ben Duckett and David Malan for the upcoming ODI against Ireland and the Vitality IT20 versus Pakistan at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff on Sunday.
ECB has withdrawn opener Alex Hales on Monday for the upcoming Ireland and Pakistan series and for the upcoming World Cup as well for using recreational drugs. The board informed that they will announce Hales’ replacement in due course.
However, just after a few hours, they have added Ben Duckett and David Malan to the squad. Meanwhile, James Vince, who was originally selected for the Ireland ODI and the Vitality IT20 against Pakistan, has been added to England’s squad for the Royal London ODI series versus Pakistan.
Jason Roy has also been withdrawn from the Ireland ODI squad and the Vitality IT20 match as he is suffering from a back spasm. He will not travel to Dublin with the rest of the squad and continue to receive treatment.
Mark Wood has also been withdrawn and will play for Durham in two Royal London One-Day Cup matches before joining the ODI squad in London next week.
