England have added Jake Ball as Liam Plunkett's cover for the upcoming tri-series starting February 3. 

Plunkett is still recovering from a hamstring injury that he picked up in the third one-dayer in Sydney and is a doubtful starter for England's warm-up match against the Prime Minister's XI on Friday.

In addition to Plunkett, there are other injury concerns for England as well. While Alex Hales is suffering from an injured hand, Chris Jordan is suffereing from a hamstring injury.

Eoin Morgan (capt), Sam Billings (wk), Jos Buttler (wk), Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Vince, David Willey, Mark Wood.
