Chris Woakes

Chris Woakes is to return home from India with a thigh strain.

Woakes will be replaced by Durham fast bowler Graham Onions in the squad.

Woakes suffered the thigh strain on Sunday during an English practice session. The Warwickshire seamer did not feature in the first two ODI matches but was hoping to stake a claim for the third ODI match in Mohali on Thursday.

Onions will be delighted with his call up after a series of back injuries has kept him out of the England side since January 2010 in South Africa.

The Durham seamer will join up with the squad in Mumbai ahead of the fourth ODI.

    Delighted for Graham- he’s a proper bowler unlike Woakes. Great lad too. He can even save games for England with the bat. Onions onions onions
