Stuart Broad will replace Liam Plunkett in the England squad for the upcoming five-match one-day series against South Africa after the Yorkshire all-rounder withdrew with a thigh strain. The 30-year-old pulled out of both the Test and 50-over squads after picking up the blow while playing for the England Lions but he remains in the Twenty20 squad as he continues to be assessed.
Broad, 29, has not played for the England one-day team since the Cricket World Cup, missing matches against New Zealand, Australia and Pakistan since the humiliating group stage exit. The Nottinghamshire seamer has meanwhile risen to the top of the Test bowling rankings after taking six for 17 in victory over the Proteas at The Wanderers.
Following the conclusion of the four-match Test series, England face South Africa in five ODIs starting in Bloemfontein on 3 February, prior to games at Port Elizabeth, Centurion, Johannesburg and Cape Town. The series is followed by two T20 games, which marks the end of the tour.
