Belfast:Middlesex batsman Ed Joyce is doubtful for England's One-day match against his native Ireland here on Tuesday after missing the final training session with a stomach bug.

Dublin-born Joyce has been included in the England squad for the upcoming One-day series against Sri Lanka and had been hoping for a chance to impress against Ireland, a match which would have brought him up against his brother Dominick.

Opener Joyce qualified to play for England after three years of residency and impressed on a recent 'A' tour to the West Indies.

England face Sri Lanka in a Twenty20 International on Thursday before the first of the five One-dayers takes place at Lord's on Saturday.
