Chris Woakes has been ruled out of the remainder of England's one-day international tour of India with a thigh strain, and will be replaced by Graham Onions.

Woakes has not played in either of England's back-to-back defeats so far, in a five-match series which continues at Mohali tomorrow.



Durham seamer Onions last played for England in the Cape Town Test against South Africa in January 2010 before suffering a career-threatening back injury.



A statement from the England and Wales Cricket Board read: "England bowler Chris Woakes has today been ruled out of the remainder of England's one-day international tour of India due to a left quadriceps strain.

"Woakes suffered the injury on Sunday during England practice in Delhi and will now undertake a rehabilitation period that rules him out of the remaining three ODIs against India.



"Durham's Graham Onions has been called into the squad as a replacement and will join the England squad in Mumbai ahead of the fourth ODI."
