Fast bowler Stuart Meaker will join the England cricket squad in India next week as cover for injured Steven Finn, the England and Wales Cricket Board said in a statement.
Finn is recovering from a thigh strain sustained in a warmup match on England’s tour of India. Meaker will return to the England Performance Program if Finn is able to play.
England and India open a four-match Test series Nov. 15 in Ahmedabad.
