Kolkata: England opener Alex Hales has been ruled out of the remaining tour against India due to his fractured hand. This news has come as a huge jolt to the England team after they are down 0-2 in the ODI series.
England will miss their opener in the third and final match of the one day international series against India.
India won by the second match by 15 runs at Cuttack and Hales was injured during this match as his right hand got fractured while diving to attempt a catch off Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
England will probably replace Hales with Sam Billings to open the batting along with Jason Roy for the third ODI and then the three T20s lined up after that. However, Jonny Bairstow might be another option in mind of the England team management.
