 England all-rounder Chris Woakes has been ruled out of the one-off ODI against Scotland due to a thigh injury.

The 29-year-old bagged four wickets before he was forced to leave the field with tightness in his right quad at the end of Pakistan`s second innings during the drawn second Test of the two-match series against England.

Woakes will now be assessed this week to know the extent of his injury ahead of the five-match ODI series against Australia, beginning June 13 at The Oval. As a result, Surrey`s Tom Curran has been called in the squad as a replacement for injured Woakes, ESPNcricinfo reported.

With this, Woakes becomes the second player to be ruled out of the Scotland ODI after all-rounder Ben Stokes was sidelined for one-off match next weekend and the first part of the five-match series against Australia with a torn hamstring.

Stokes sustained the injury while fielding during a practice session ahead if the ongoing second Test against Pakistan at Headingley.

He was later replaced by debutant paceman Sam Curran. England are also slated to play a one-off ODI against Scotland in Edinburgh on June 10 before they will head to Australian series.
