Alex Hales has been added to the England squad for the third one-day international against West Indies after recovering from a broken hand.

Hales was initially left out of after sustaining the injury while fielding in the second ODI against India in Cuttack in January.

England have already triumphed in the three-match series after back-to-back victories in Antigua, but the opening batsman will be available as the tourists look to complete a whitewash in Barbados on Thursday.

Having opted out of the tour to Bangladesh last year, the third ODI will provide Hales with some valuable practice in the 50-over format ahead of the Champions Trophy on home soil in June.
