Shardul Thakur has replaced injured Jasprit Bumrah in India's ODI squad against England.

Fast bowler Shardul Thakur was on Friday named as Jasprit Bumrah's replacement in India's squad for three-match ODI series against England, starting on July 12 in Trent Bridge, Nottingham.

Bumrah suffered an injury to his left thumb during India's first T2OI against Ireland in Dublin. He was ruled out of the ongoing T2OI series against England.

"Bumrah underwent a surgery on Wednesday, July 4, 2018 in Leeds before returning to India. The surgery was successful and he will commence rehabilitation under the supervision of the BCCI Medical Team," a statement from BCCI said.

The first ODI begins on July 12 at Nottingham, followed by the second match at London on July 14 and third match at Leeds on July 17.

However, surgery followed by recovery and resumption of training may take time and Bumrah will certainly be a doubtful starter as far as the Test series is concerned. The first Test will start from August 1 in Birmingham.

India's squad for ODIs against England: Virat Kohli (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur, Hardik Pandya, Siddarth Kaul, Umesh Yadav
