England drop Vince for Pak ODIs

But they have recalled fit-again Durham duo Ben Stokes and Mark Wood into a 15-man squad which also features a call-up for Vince’s Hampshire team-mate Liam Dawson, yet to make his ODI debut.

Vince failed to score a Test 50 after making his debut against Sri Lanka earlier this season and the recent Pakistan series saw the Hampshire captain manage just 158 runs in seven innings at an average of 22.

Meanwhile fast bowler Steven Finn was not included after injuring his hamstring during England’s 10-wicket defeat by Pakistan in last week’s fourth Test at The Oval.

England one-day captain Eoin Morgan has been included despite not playing since breaking a finger batting for Middlesex on July 26.

Stokes has been sidelined with knee and calf injuries this season while Wood has undergone two ankle operations since last playing for England in a Test against Pakistan in Dubai in October.

Spin bowler Dawson made an impressive international debut against Sri Lanka at his Southampton home ground in July, taking three wickets in England’s eight-wicket win. The five-match one-day series against Pakistan starts in Southampton on August 24. 

England’s Finn out for a month
England fast bowler Steven Finn is set to be out of action for at least a month after suffering a hamstring injury, it was announced on Tuesday.

The Middlesex quick suffered the left hamstring tear just two balls into his second-innings spell against Pakistan in the fourth Test at The Oval on Sunday and has been let out of England’s squad for the upcoming five-match one-day international series.

Finn, 27, is not expected to play international cricket again this season. But the 6ft 7in veteran of 35 Tests and 65 ODIs, is aiming to be involved in County Championship action in September.

“Middlesex and England bowler Steven Finn has sustained a left hamstring tear,” said an England and Wales Cricket Board statement issued Tuesday. “He is anticipated to be available in approximately four weeks. He will start a rehabilitation programme with Middlesex and England, and is aiming to play a part in Middlesex’s Championship.
