Centurion:England fast bowler Steve Harmison will play a part in the seven-match One-day series in South Africa despite a calf strain.

According to England team sources, Harmison went for a scan and it was reported to be pretty positive. It was learnt that Harmison may have to miss the first couple of One-day matches but will be available for the last three or four games.

The ace paceman has been a pale shadow of his consistent self in the four Test series as he managed to snare nine scalps.

Meanwhile, seamers Matthew Hoggard and Simon Jones have been added to the squad, which means that England will have seven front-line seamers to choose from during the series with Darren Gough, James Anderson, Kabir Ali and Alex Wharf also being picked.

England One-day squad: M Vaughan (capt), Kabir Ali, J Anderson, G Batty, I Bell, P Collingwood, A Giles, D Gough, S Harmison, M Hoggard, G Jones (wkt), S Jones, K Pietersen, V Solanki, A Strauss, M Trescothick, A Wharf.
