India has been handed a boost after fast bowler Ishant Sharma has been ruled fit for the third one-dayer against England in Kanpur.

New Delhi:

Indian speedster Ishant Sharma, who could not take part in the first two ODIs due to injury, was declared fit to play the third ODI against England in Kanpur, scheduled to be played on November 20.

The lanky Ishant, who bagged the man-of-the-series in India's 2-0 Test series win over Australia missed the first two games against England with an ankle injury. An MRI scan on his ankle revealed that it was just a minor sprain and it was suggested that he take a little rest. If Ishant returns to action in Kanpur, either Munaf Patel or R P Singh will make way.

England will play seven One-dayers and two Tests during their tour of India.
