England left-arm seamer David Willey has been cleared of any significant injuries in his left shoulder after undergoing scans.

Willey only bowled two overs in the third and final ODI against India in Kolkata before being forced to leave the field, but having been given the all clear in regards to his shoulder, he is likely to play some part in the upcoming Twenty20 series, which begins on Thursday.

The 26-year-old stayed behind in Kolkata to have the scans, while the rest of the Twenty20 squad travelled to Kanpur to prepare for the first Twenty20 International.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) confirmed that Willey will now head to Kanpur to be with the rest of his team-mates, but added that he will be assessed by medical staff during the week.

“A scan didn’t show up significant damage to his left shoulder. He could still feature in the IT20 series,” England Cricket said via Twitter. “He will travel to Kanpur tomorrow for a further assessment with ECB medical staff.”
