Uncapped Somerset all-rounder Craig Overton has been called into the England squad as cover for the injured Chris Jordan ahead of the third one-day international against New Zealand at the Ageas Bowl.

Jordan suffered a side strain during the 13-run loss at The Oval on 12 June while the Sussex seamer also went for a record-equalling 97 in his nine overs with the ball.

The 21-year-old Overton has never represented England in any form of international cricket, but his ferocious pace has impressed the selectors.

Overton, who has taken 20 Championship wickets at an average of 18.05 this season, could yet be overlooked for the fixture but will miss Somerset's four-day Division One match against Nottinghamshire starting on 14 June.

"This is great news for Craig and Somerset cricket and thoroughly deserved and we watch him every success," Somerset director of cricket Matt Maynard said.

"Of course it's disappointing that Craig will miss our match against Notts, but it is testament to the quality of young players that we are producing at Somerset."

England will travel to Southampton following another encouraging performance in defeat to New Zealand, with a positive batting approach almost rewarded with a second straight victory.

Captain Eoin Morgan top scored with 88 as England narrowly missed out on reaching the rain-adjusted total of 379 runs to win, but the skipper has pledged that his side will continue their attacking style.

"I love batting with these new guys and the way they play really excites me and it should excite everyone else at home," he said.

"It's great to watch and I'm hoping that this attitude continues. We're trying to emphasise it as much as we can and at Southampton – we'll be coming in with the same attitude."
