Woakes joined Ben Stokes on the injury sidelines after suffering a thigh strain in England's victory over Pakistan in the second NatWest Test at Headingley.

Jake Ball has been called into the England squad for the upcoming Royal London one-day global series against Australia. The Warwickshire all-rounder has led the one-day attack for the past year and has taken 37 wickets at 23.02 in his last 21 ODI matches.

Woakes' fitness for the subsequent five-match series against Australia will be assessed this week, England confirmed in a post on Twitter.

"Both players have commenced their injury rehab programs and will be hoping to respond to treatment with the aim of featuring in the latter stages of the series".

"Chris Woakes has been ruled out of the Scotland ODI with tightness in his right quad", the statement said.

Supreme Court dismisses appeal over NI abortion law
As a result, the justices said the Supreme Court "has no jurisdiction " in the proceedings to strike down the law. That part of the ruling gave hope to abortion rights activists seeking to liberalize Northern Ireland's laws.

The series is due to get underway at The Oval on Wednesday, June 13.

Ball has played 17 ODIs, most recently during the 4-1 series win in Australia in January.

Joe Root, England's Test captain, is available for Yorkshire's home game against Northamptonshire on Thursday; a match that could yet decide which teams qualify for the knock-out stages.

England have other pace bowlers, like Jake Ball who has been called up to replace Woakes, and Tom Curran, who can be nearly as effective with the ball.
