Manoj Tiwary, the Bengal batsman, has been named as the replacement for Rohit Sharma in India's ODI squad in England. Rohit fractured his right index finger during the first ODI in Durham and has been ruled out of the remainder of the series.

India are also waiting on the fitness of Sachin Tendulkar, who missed the first ODI because of an aggravation of an old toe injury. He is scheduled to visit a surgeon in London on September 5. Rohit's participation in the series lasted only one ball, bowled by Stuart Broad, which struck him on the glove. Rohit left the field immediately and went to the hospital for a scan, which revealed a fracture.
