CRICKET- Right-arm pacer Shardul Thakur has been named as the replacement of Jasprit Bumrah in the upcoming three match ODI series against England.

Bumrah injured his left thumb while playing in the first T20 against Ireland at The Village in Dublin late last month. Bumrah will now return home to undergo rehabilitation and recovery.

“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,” a BCCI release added.

Shardul Thakur has so far played three ODIs and seven T20s for Indian cricket team. His last appearance for India was on the tour of South Africa, wherein the Virat Kohli-led team crushed the hosts 5-1.
