England all-rounder Chris Woakes is unlikely to play in the third ODI against Sri Lanka in Hambantota due to an upset stomach.

Woakes missed England’s training session on Monday after he and assistant coach Paul Farbrace fell sick during the team’s journey from Colombo to Hambantota.

If Woakes is ruled out of the third ODI, the most likely candidates to replace him are opener Alex Hales, all-rounder Ben Stokes, pace bowler Chris Jordan and batsman James Taylor.

England currently trail Sri Lanka 2-0 heading into the third ODI, which will get underway on December 3.
