                             Durham pacer Graham Onions [ Images ] will replace injured seamer Chris Woakes in the England [ Images ] squad for the last two ODIs and the one-off Twenty20 [ Images ] against India [ Images ], the England and Wales Cricket Board  has stated.

                    Woakes was ruled out of the tour due to a left quadriceps strain.
                    "Woakes suffered the injury on Sunday during England practice in Delhi [ Images ] and will now undertake rehabilitation period that rules him out of the remaining three ODIs against India," the ECB stated.

             Onions will join the squad in Mumbai [ Images ] ahead of the fourth ODI on October 23. The 22-year-old Woakes didn't feature in the playing XI during the first two internationals even though he played in the couple of warm-up games against Hyderabad XI.
