Johannesburg, Jan.22 (ANI): England fast bowler Stuart Broad has been included in the ODI squad as a replacement for injured Liam Plunkett for the upcoming five-match series between the two sides.

30-year-old Plunkett, who was about to replace injured Steve Finn, suffered a thigh strain, which made way for Broad in the squad, Sport24 reported.

According to the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), Plunkett would continue to remain in the T20 squad if he recovers in time for those matches.

The two sides will play the ODI series (from February 3) before heading into two-match T20 series,starting from February 19. (ANI)
