Willey ruled out of ODI series

— 14 February 2017

David Willey will miss England’s three-match One-Day International series against the West Indies in the Caribbean next month.

The Yorkshire all-rounder had surgery on his left shoulder on Friday to further assess the injury he sustained whilst bowling in the third ODI against India last month. He has suffered a partial tear of a tendon and will be out of action until April.

Willey will be replaced in the England squad by Middlesex seamer Steven Finn, who is currently playing in the T20 Pakistan Super League in the UAE.

England fly to the Caribbean next Wednesday where they play two warm-up matches and three ODIs against the West Indies.
