Olly Stone has been called into the England one-day international squad for the first time for next month’s tour of Sri Lanka.
The Warwickshire seamer will replace Liam Plunkett in the 16-man squad for the five-match series as the Yorkshire fast bowler is getting married.
Stone, 24, who has struggled with injury problems in recent years, has impressed selectors with his consistent performances this season.
He suffered a very serious knee injury at the end of his Northants career in 2016 after celebrating the wicket of Moeen Ali.
That didn't stop various counties attempt to swoop in and sign him, however, with Warwickshire eventually winning the race for his signature.
Now he is fully fit and firing again.
Much has been made about the lack of genuine pace within England's pool of fast bowlers currently but Stone is one of the few who can get express speed on the ball.
And in Sri Lankan conditions, where pitches will be extremely slow, Stone could prove a very useful option to call upon.
Although Plunkett will miss the first three matches of the series, which starts on October 10 in Dambulla, he will be available again for the last two ODIs.
Yorkshire all-round David Willey was not considered for selection as he continues to recover from a back injury.
Ben Stokes and Alex Hales have both received call-ups despite being charged with bringing the game into disrepute for an incident outside a nightclub in Bristol last year.
The England squad will depart for Sri Lanka on September 30 and their first warm-up game takes place in Colombo on October 5.
