Manoj Tiwary replaces Rohit in ODI squad
Manoj Tiwari, 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. He left the field immediately and went to the hospital for a scan, which revealed a fracture.
Tiwary has played three ODIs for India, the last two being in the West Indies in June, when he made only 2 and 22. Since then, however, Tiwary travelled to Australia for the Emerging Players Tournament, in which he scored 188 in a three-day match against New Zealand A and 59 against Australia Institute of Sport. He also made 45 not out and 36 in two Twenty20 matches on that tour.
