Moreover, Sam Billings, who sustained a bruised collar bone while fielding in the first ODI, will be unavailable for the second ODI with his participation in the final game to be decided in due course. Liam Livingstone will make his debut on Friday in the second ODI, ECB said, and Dawid Malan, who was in the squad as a cover, will be available for selection in the final two games.
