The Mansfield-born paceman was called up following injuries to James Anderson and Mark Wood.

Ball made his test debut against Pakiston in July at Lords.

Anderson, England’s all-time leading Test wicket-taker, has not played since the fourth Test loss to Pakistan in August because of a damaged shoulder.

England play three one-day internationals and two Tests on the tour, for which they leave on Thursday.
