English pacer Jake Ball has been recalled in the squad as cover of Liam Plunkett for the t20 tri-series, which is going to be started on 7th February. Plunkett hasn’t recovered yet from his hamstring injury that he picked up in the 3rd ODI in Sydney. He is also a doubtful starter for England’s warm-up game against the Prime Minister’s XI on Friday.
Also, Alex Hales and Chris Jorden would be unavailable for the Friday’s warm-up match due to their respective injuries.
However, all the players are hopeful of recovering before the first T20I in Hobart, which is scheduled to be played on 7th February.
