England call up Malan as cover for Curran
Dawid Malan has been added to England's squad for their Twenty20 opener against India on Tuesday.
England head into the three-match series, which precedes one-day and Test matches, in high spirits after dismantling Australia in both limited-over formats.
However, Tom Curran is a doubt for the first clash at Old Trafford and so Malan has been called in as cover.
Curran is struggling with a side strain, although he is expected to be fit for the second and third matches.
