Chris Woakes has joined Ben Stokes on the sidelines for England’s one-off one-day international against Scotland in Edinburgh on 10 June because of tightness in his right quad.
England had earlier lost the services of Ben Stokes for the match. Stokes had suffered a left hamstring tear before England’s second and final Test against Pakistan at Headingley, which the home side won by an innings and 55 runs to level the series, and is set to not only miss the Scotland game but also at least the first part of England’s five-match ODI series against Australia this month.
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.

In the case of Woakes, who picked up four wickets at Headingley on his return to the Test team, the ECB said that the all-rounder “will be assessed this week to ascertain if he’ll be fit for the Australia series”.
The ODI series against Australia will start on 13 June at The Oval in London before travelling to Cardiff, Nottingham, Chester-le-Street and Manchester.
The two teams will also play a T20I in Birmingham after the ODIs.
