Shardul to replace Bumrah in India�s ODI squad

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, July 6: Mumbai fast bowler Shardul Thakur will replace injured pacer Jasprit Bumrah in India�s ODI squad for the upcoming three-match series against England starting July 12.

Bumrah had suffered an injury to his left thumb during India�s first T20I against Ireland in Dublin and was ruled out of the ongoing T20I series against England.

The 24-year-old seamer underwent a surgery last Wednesday in Leeds before returning to India. The surgery was successful and he will commence rehabilitation under the supervision of the BCCI Medical Team.

�The All-India Senior Selection Committee has named Shardul Thakur as Jasprit Bumrah�s replacement in India�s ODI squad,� BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary said in a release.

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. � PTI
