Sam Billings has been called up to the England squad for the one-day international decider against India as cover for injury doubt Jason Roy.

Roy suffered a laceration to his finger while fielding during England's 86-run victory at Lord's on Saturday.

The opening batsman will undergo a fitness test ahead of the third and final match of the series at Headingley on Tuesday.

James Vince was drafted in on Sunday after Dawid Malan and Sam Curran were released to play for England Lions against India A and Billings has also been added to the squad.

India won the opening match of the series at Trent Bridge and will attempt to respond to a below-par display in the second ODI when the two sides meet in Leeds.
