London: New Zealand left-arm seamer Trent Boult was ruled out Thursday of the upcoming one-day series against England and is now set to miss the subsequent Champions Trophy tournament as well.

Boult suffered a side injury during New Zealand's 247-run second Test defeat at Headingley, concluded Tuesday, and bowled just two overs in England's second innings.

An MRI scan on Wednesday confirmed the initial diagnosis of a muscle tear in Boult's right side, ruling him out of a three-match series with England starting at Lord's on Friday and featuring matches in Southampton (Sunday) and Nottingham (Wednesday).
