[UK], Feb. 15 (ANI): England's all-rounder David Willey will miss the upcoming three-match One-Day International (ODI) series against West Indies in the Caribbean following surgery on a shoulder injury.

Willey had surgery on his left shoulder on Friday to further assess the injury he sustained whilst bowling in the third ODI against India last month. He has suffered a partial tear of a tendon and will be out of action until April, said England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).

The 26-year-old will be replaced by Steven Finn, who is currently playing in the T20 Pakistan Super League (PSL) in the UAE. Finn, who last played international white-ball cricket back in September 2015, will now curtail his involvement in the PSL to join the England squad.

England fly to the Caribbean next Wednesday where they play two warm-up matches and three ODIs against the West Indies.

The first two warm-up matches will be played on February 25 and 27, followed by three ODIs to be played on March 3, 5 and 9 respectively. (ANI)
