England has called-up Sam Curran and Craig Overton for the remaining two One Day Internationals against Australia keeping in mind the upcoming hectic schedule to reduce the workloads of their fast bowlers on Wednesday (20 June).

Also, England is likely to make some changes in their playing XI for the fourth ODI against Australia to be played on 21 June (Thursday) at Emirates Riverside in Durham. 

With the national call, Sam and Overton set to miss the tri-series against India 'A' and West Indies 'A' starting from Friday (June 22).

However, the 24-year-old all-rounder will then rejoin the Lions squad for the remainder of the matches, but Curran was replaced by Chris Jordan for the series as the pacer is already line-up to play Australia T20 Internationals as well as India series.

The 20-year-old Sam, who made his Test debut against Pakistan at home earlier this month, and Overton who has played 3 Tests for England since making debut in December 2017, will be making their ODI debut against Australia on home soil on Thursday.

On Tuesday (19 June), England won the third ODI by colossal margin of 242 runs at Trent Bridge, Nottingham to take a 3-0 lead in the five-match series against Australia with fourth and the final ODI to be played on 21 and 24 June at Riverside Ground and Old Trafford, Manchester respectively.
