Barrow cricketer Liam Livingstone has been called into England's squad for their remaining two one-day internationals against Ireland.

The Lancashire all-rounder has replaced Joe Denly in the squad after the Kent man was ruled out the rest of the series because of a back injury.

England, who won the first ODI by six wickets on Thursday, are up against Ireland again tomorrow, with the series concluding on Tuesday, both matches taking place behind closed doors at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton.

Should Livingstone feature in either, it would be his ODI debut for England and his first appearance in international cricket since his two T20s against South Africa in June 2017.

The 26-year-old did play for England Lions against the Irish last Sunday, when he made 28 off 20 balls in helping his side towards a seven-wicket victory.

He had earlier claimed the wicket of Ireland captain Andy Balbirnie in taking 1-41 off seven overs during the tourists' 296 all out.

Livingstone had been due to play for Lancashire in their first Bob Willis Trophy match of the shortened county season against Leicestershire, which gets under way tomorrow morning.

The match will be taking place at Worcester's New Road ground because of the local lockdown measures still in force in Leicester, following a spike in coronavirus cases.
