SOMERSET’S Craig Overton has been called up into the England squad for the five-Test series against India.

He was drafted into the squad after Ben Stokes pulled out to “take an indefinite break from all cricket with immediate effect”.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said Stokes will prioritise his mental well-being and rest his left index finger which has not fully healed.

The first match of the India series starts at Trent Bridge, Nottingham, on Wednesday (August 4).
