Manoj Tiwary
Mumbai, Sep 4 (IANS) Middle-order batsman Manoj Tiwary was Sunday named as a replacement for the injured Rohit Sharma in India's One-day squad for the remaining four matches against England.

Sharma was ruled out for the remaining ODIs due to a finger injury he suffered while batting in the rain-hit opening match in Chester-le-Street Saturday.

'Rohit Sharma fractured his right index finger during the first ODI against England, and has been ruled out of the remainder of the series as a result.

'Manoj Tiwary has been named his replacement in the India ODI squad. He will join the team at the earliest,' BCCI secretary N. Srinivasan said in a statement.

The series stands at 0-0 with the second ODI scheduled in Southampton Tuesday.
