Kent bowler James Tredwell has been handed a recall to the England One-Day International side for the remainder of the series against South Africa.
Off-spinner Graeme Swann will sit-out the final three games of the series to rest an elbow problem which has dogged him for months, with the ECB recalling Tredwell ahead of Friday's third ODI at the Kia Oval.
Tredwell, 30, from New Romney, will seek to earn a place in Andy Flower's starting line-up to add to his solitary Test appearance and six ODI caps in England colours.
South Africa lead the series 1-0 after Hashim Amla's swashbuckling 150 laid the foundations for an 80-run win in the second match on Tuesday.
The opening clash was abandoned due to bad weather.
Nottinghamshire star Swann, 33, who has seen his workload in all three forms of the game limited by the ECB in recent months, is expected to return for the three match Twenty20 series.
Tredwell was called up for the final ODI against Australia last month to allow Swann to rest his right elbow.
The Kent man was however omitted from the final 15-man England party for next month's ICC World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka, despite being named along with Swann in the initial 30-strong squad.
