England added Warwickshire paceman Chris Woakes to their squad on Monday for the two ODIs against the West Indies.

London – England added Warwickshire paceman Chris Woakes to their squad on Monday for the two one-day internationals (ODIs) against the West Indies.

Woakes was called up into the squad in case, a statement said, Jade Dernbach was unavailable for the remaining fixtures on “compassionate grounds”.

English cricket was stunned Monday when promising batsman Tom Maynard, a Surrey team-mate of Dernbach's, died aged just 23 after being hit by a London Underground train.

Fast-medium bowler Dernbach didn't feature as England took a 1-0 lead in their three-match one-day series against the West Indies courtesy of a 114-run win under the Duckworth/Lewis method at Southampton on Saturday.

The second ODI is at The Oval, Surrey's headquarters ground in south London, on Tuesday.

Woakes, 23, has taken seven wickets at just over 21 apiece in his four ODIS, with his most recent appearance against Ireland in Dublin last year.

Teams and officials for the second one-day international between England and the West Indies at The Oval on Tuesday:

England (from): Alastair Cook (capt), James Anderson, Jonathan Bairstow, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Jade Dernbach, Steven Finn, Craig Kieswetter (wkt), Eoin Morgan, Samit Patel, Graeme Swann, Jonathan Trott, Chris Woakes
