England's wicketkeeper-batsman Ben Foakes was on Wednesday ruled out of the upcoming two-match Test series against New Zealand after a freak dressing-room accident resulted in a torn hamstring.

The 28-year-old sustained the injury after slipping in his socks while walking in the dressing room following Surrey's County Championship match against Middlesex at the Oval, 'ESPNCricinfo' reported.

Haseeb Hameed and the uncapped Sam Billings have been added to England's Test squad for the matches against New Zealand.

Foakes was to play his first Test at home next month at Lord's after fellow wicketkeepers Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow -- along with Moeen Ali, Sam Curran and Chris Woakes -- were rested for the series following their stints in the Indian Premier League.
