  • Bhuvneshwar and Buttler will battle with the new ball

Tom Curran will miss England's white-ball summer because of a side strain, and his brother Sam will replace him in the one-day worldwide series against India.

Curran was expected to be fit and available for selection for his side's opening T20I game against India on July 3 at Manchester, but a left side strain ruled him out of both the T20I series, as well as the ODI games. The 23-year-old has been replaced by his younger brother Sam in the squad.

While the replacement of Curran, a seamer, with a batsman, Malan, raised a few eyebrows, an England spokesman confirmed on Monday that Matt Fisher and Reece Topley had been considered for a call-up, but the team management concluded they would be better served playing for England Lions against India A instead.

Tom played four games in the Royal One-Day Cup, and also represented the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League a couple of months ago.

Curran suffered the injury while part of England's ODI squad against Australia last month, but was retained to take on India for the Vitality IT20 series which gets under way at Old Trafford on Tuesday and three 50-over matches to follow.
