The Indian cricket team, which fought through several injury problems through 2016, has now been dealt more blows ahead of the limited-overs series against England.

According to media reports, all-rounder Axar Patel is unlikely to feature in MS Dhoni's squad against England due to a thumb injury.

The left-arm spinner injured himself while fielding in the fifth and final Test against England in Chennai. The injury also forced Patel to sit out of Gujarat's Ranji Trophy quarterfinal against Odisha.

The 22-year-old has been an integral part of India's limited-overs squad.

Jayant Yadav, who hit the headlines with his sensational show in the recently concluded Test series against England, also hasn't recovered from a hamstring injury.

The duo joins Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Mohammed Shami and Ravichandran Ashwin on India's ever-growing injury list.

The national selectors are likely to meet on January 5 or 6 to name India's squad for the series against England.

The first ODI of the series will be played on January 15 in Pune
