India is currently on a high after an emphatic win over England in the first T20I in Manchester. Kuldeep Yadav (5/24) and KL Rahul (101*) starred in the India win and with two more matches to go in the series, India has an upper hand over the hosts.

After the culmination of the T20I series, India and England will engage in a three match ODI series as well before the five match Test series in August. India received a shock when Washington Sundar was ruled out of the limited overs series due to an ankle injury and Jasprit Bumrah was confirm to miss the T20I series due to hurting his thumb during the Ireland T20I. Bumrah was supposed to get fit in time for India to play the ODI series against England. Deepak Chahar replaced him in the T20I series.

But in more bad news for India, it was further confirmed that Jasprit Bumrah’s injury is serious enough for him to miss the ODI series as well and BCCI has named a replacement for him in the ODI series as well.

"The All-India Senior Selection Committee has named Shardul Thakur as Jasprit Bumrah’s replacement in India’s ODI squad," the BCCI statement read.

"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."
