Injured England all-rounder Ben Stokes will miss next weekend's one-day international against Scotland and will be replaced in the squad by uncapped batsman Dawid Malan.

The England and Wales Cricket Board announced in a statement that Stokes, ruled out of the ongoing second NatWest Test against Pakistan with a hamstring tear, will also miss "the first part of the five-match Royal London ODI series against Australia".

England have added Sam Billings to their squad to face Australia, in the initial absence of Stokes.

The ECB statement read: "England all-rounder Ben Stokes will miss the ODI against Scotland in Edinburgh and will be unavailable for the first part of the five-match Royal London ODI series against Australia as he recovers from a left hamstring tear.

"Stokes, who sustained the injury in the build-up to the NatWest Test match at Headingley against Pakistan, will be assessed later this week.

"He will continue his rehabilitation programme and will return to his county side Durham on Monday.

"Middlesex batsman Dawid Malan has been added to the squad for the Scotland game on Sunday June 10, and Kent batsman Sam Billings has been drafted into the squad for the Australia series which gets under way at the Kia Oval on Wednesday June 13."
