Sam Billings has been ruled out of England's ODI against Ireland and IT20 against Pakistan

Kent’s Sam Billings is ruled out of England’s ODI against Ireland and the Vitality IT20 against Pakistan with a dislocated left shoulder. He is replaced in the squad by Surrey wicketkeeper Ben Foakes.

Billings, who sustained the injury diving in the field in Kent’s Royal London One-Day Cup match against Glamorgan at Sophia Gardens on Thursday, will see a consultant today to determine the severity of the injury.

England travel to Dublin on Wednesday and take on Ireland in a one-off ODI at Malahide next Friday.
