The presence of England left-arm pacer David Willey for the T20 series against India is in doubt as the Yorkshire pacer, who injured his left arm during the final ODI of the series did not fly with the team to Kanpur to prepare for the T20I series.

It is learnt that Willey went for scans and reports suggest that there is nothing serious about the injury and the pacer will join the camp on Tuesday, to prepare for the T20I series.

The medical staff of England cricket team will check the progress of the injury and then a decision would be taken.

England has already lost the services of Alex Hales, who was ruled out of the third ODI and the T20 series following an injury. He was replaced by Jonny Bairstow in the T20 squad.

The T20I series between India and England starts from January 26 with the first match to be played at Kanpur. The second and third T20I will be played on January 29 and February 1 at Nagpur and Bangalore respectively.

Meanwhile, India has rested two frontline spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja for the T20 series. Amit Mishra and Parvez Rasool have been called in the squad in their place.
