England have suffered another injury blow ahead of the one-day series against Australia with the news that Chris Woakes is a doubt with a muscle problem.

England all-rounder, Ben Stokes is in doubt for the upcoming one-day worldwide series against Australia after being diagnosed with a torn hamstring.

Stokes will also miss the first-half of the five-match series against Australia with a torn hamstring.

Woakes's replacement, Curran, comes into the squad, having played five matches at the recently concluded IPL for the Kolkata Knight Riders.

Stokes, who was replaced in England's team for the second Test by 19-year-old all-rounder Sam Curran, was sent for a scan on Thursday afternoon that revealed the tear in his left hamstring.

England all-rounder Chris Woakes has been ruled out of the one-off ODI against Scotland due to a thigh injury.

He will not be involved against Scotland this Sunday and a decision over his participation against Australia will be determined following further fitness tests this week. The right-arm seamer will be assessed this week to check if he will be fit for the Australia series.
