England have called up Somerset fast bowler Jamie Overton to their ODI squad for the remaining two ODIs against New Zealand.

Jamie joins his brother Craig in the squad and presents the prospect of England fielding twins in the same match for the first time.

Jamie Overton, the 21-year-old from Devon, replaces Liam Plunkett who has been ruled out of the series with a thigh strain having played the first two matches of the series.

Craig Overton replaced Chris Jordan who was also injured after the second ODI.

Both Overtons have represented the England Under-19 and Lions sides but neither has played for the senior team.

If they both appear against the Black Caps, the Overtons would become the first twins to play for England’s senior team in the same match.
