England fast bowler Steven Finn will no longer take part in the ongoing South African tour after suffering a side strain in the recently concluded third Test and has been replaced by Liam Plunkett in the limited overs squad.

After the completion of the Johannesburg Test match against South Africa further scans were conducted on Finn which revealed a left side strain.

Finn who was originally a part of the One-Day International and the Twenty20 International squads ­will return to England after the completion of the Test series.

Plunkett is currently with the England Lions squad in the United Arab Emirates and will fly to South Africa after the first two 50-over matches against Pakistan A.

An official release from the England and Wales Cricket Board stated that Finn is expected to be fit for the 2016 ICC World T20.
