Thakur to replace Bumrah in India's ODI squad

London - 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. 

"The surgery was successful and he will commence rehabilitation under the supervision of the BCCI Medical Team." 

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. 

Bumrah's replacement Thakur, 26, is an attacking quick bowler who has played seven T20 matches and three ODIs since making his 50-over debut in Sri Lanka last year. 

India, who lead the three-match T20 series against England 1-0, will play their second T20 at Cardiff on Friday. The first of the three ODI matches is scheduled in Nottingham on July 12.
