London, Aug 2 (ANI): England fast bowler Steven Finn will replace injured Ben Stokes in the squad for the third Test against Pakistan at Edgbaston, according to skipper Alastair Cook.

25-year-old Stokes suffering a calf injury and limped off the field midway on the fourth day of the second Test at Old Trafford, which England won by 330 runs to level the four-match series 1-1.

The injured all-rounder is expected to miss the rest of the Test series after scans confirmed he had torn a calf muscle in his right leg, the Guardian reported.

Last week, England selectors had announced a 13-man squad for Edgbaston Test, which included Jake Ball, Finn and Adil Rashid.

Cook subsequently picked experienced Finn over fellow paceman Jake Ball for the test, which starts from Wednesday. (ANI)
