NEW DELHI: Fast bowler Shardul Thakur will replace injured Jasprit Bumrah in India’s One-day International squad in England, the country’s cricket board said on Friday.

The Virat Kohli-led India, who are slated to play three ODI matches after the ongoing Twenty20 series, will also take on the hosts in five Tests in their almost three-month long tour that started this week.

“Bumrah underwent a surgery on Wednesday, July 4, 2018 in Leeds before returning to India,” the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said in a release.

Bumrah fractured his thumb during India’s first of two T20 matches against Ireland last month and was ruled out of the limited overs matches in England.
