India opener Rohit Sharma has been ruled out of the remainder of the One-day series in England after suffering a broken finger, it was announced on Friday.
Murali Vijay will fly to England as his replacement but is unlikely to arrive in time for Saturday's third One-day International at Nottingham's Trent Bridge ground.
Sharma appeared to sustain the injury while fielding during world champions India's 133-run win in the second ODI in Cardiff on Wednesday after making 52 when the tourists batted.
A statement issued by the Board of Control for Cricket in India said: "Rohit Sharma has sustained a fracture on the middle finger of his right hand, and has been ruled out of the ongoing ODI and T20
International Series against England, as a result."
It added: "The All-India senior selection committee has picked Murali Vijay as his replacement.
"Vijay will join the squad in England at the earliest."
India's win in Cardiff left them 1-0 up in the five-match series with three to play.
Vijay opened throughout India's preceding 3-1 defeat by England in a five-Test series.
If he does not play on Saturday, India could promote Ajinkya Rahane to open and bring Ambati Rayudu into their top order.
