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.
