Side injury forces Hales out of opening ODI

By Sports Desk July 12, 2018

Dawid Malan has been drafted into England's one-day squad to face India at Trent Bridge after Alex Hales suffered a side injury in the nets.

Hales winced in pain as he played an attacking shot during a training session, the 29-year-old releasing his bat and immediately grabbing at his left side.

He continued the session before gingerly leaving the field in Nottingham.

Thursday's match is the first of three ODIs between England and India, with Joe Root expected to take Hales' place after missing the final T20 in Bristol at the weekend, while Malan will act as cover for Hales in the squad.
