India have called in Karnataka all-rounder Stuart Binny in place of injured pacer Varun Aaron for the second and third ODIs against Sri Lanka. The rest of the squad, led by Virat Kohli, remained unchanged.

Meanwhile, the selection of the teams for the last two ODIs against Sri Lanka and the tour of Australia, has been postponed.

Binny, 30, recorded the best ever figures by an Indian in ODIs, when he picked up 6/4 to send Bangladesh crashing to a defeat as India successfully defended 105.

Aaron, suffered a muscle strain in his right leg during the five-match ODI series opener against Sri Lanka in Cuttack on Sunday.

Aaron had to leave the field grimacing in pain after bowling the first ball of the 13th over and Virat Kohli had to complete the over.

Aaron, who incidentally clocked 152kph in the first over, chatted with Kohli as the physio was called before the pacer was taken off after bowling 4.1 overs, conceding 26 runs. India, who had piled on 363/5 earlier, defeated Sri Lanka by 169 runs after Ishant Sharma pocketed 4/34.
