Worcestershire fast bowler Josh Tongue will miss this winter's England Lions tour of the UAE after suffering a stress fracture in his left foot.

The 20-year-old had been named in the Lions' squad for the four-day fixture against Pakistan A in November.

Lancashire's Saqib Mahmood, who was already in the limited-overs squad, has replaced Tongue in the red-ball side.

As well as the four-day fixtures, the Lions will also play five 50-over matches and two Twenty20 games.
