Mumbai: Middle-order batsman Manoj Tiwary was on 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 on 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.
