England pacers Jordan, Plunkett will miss rest of ODI series

LONDON (AP) -- England fast bowlers Chris Jordan and Liam Plunkett are injured and will miss the three remaining one-day internationals against New Zealand.

The England and Wales Cricket Board made the announcement on Saturday, a day after they took a wicket each in the 13-run loss to New Zealand at The Oval.

Jordan has a side strain, and Plunkett a thigh strain.

Only Jordan was replaced for now, by uncapped allrounder Craig Overton, who has played for England Under-19s and Lions, and was at Somerset. But other seam bowlers in the squad include Mark Wood and David Willey.

The third ODI is on Sunday at Southampton, with the series even.
