Stuart Meaker, pictured, will join the England squad as injury cover for Steven Finn

Finn picked up a thigh injury in the second over of his second spell in England's first game of their tour against India A earlier this week.

He is therefore a doubt for their final warm-up match next week, leading to Meaker's call-up.

The Surrey paceman will return to the England Performance Programme once Finn returns to fitness and his arrival date in India is subject to obtaining the necessary visa early next week.
