Matthew Potts replaces Josh Tongue in England squad for West Indies series

More articles

England have called up Matthew Potts for their ODI series against the West Indies after seamer Josh Tongue was ruled out of the white-ball tour with an injury.

Jos Buttler’s team will play three 50-over matches in the Caribbean next month followed by five Twenty20 internationals, just weeks after their bitterly disappointing World Cup campaign.

Josh Tongue, 26, had continued his impressive breakthrough year on the international stage with a maiden white-ball call-up when the squads were announced earlier this month but he picked up an injury while on a training camp in the United Arab Emirates with the England Lions second-tier team.

Matthew Potts has represented England in three ODI matches during the series against Ireland in September.

Josh Tongue’s injury will rule him out of the whole tour of the West Indies, with Matthew Potts filling in his shoes in the ODI series, however no replacement for the T20I squad has been finalised yet.

The ODI series is set to begin in Antigua on December 3.
