England fast bowler Chris Woakes has been ruled out of the remaining three ODIs in India after sustaining a thigh injury. He will be replaced by Durham's Graham Onions, who will join the squad in Mumbai ahead of the fourth ODI on October 23.

Woakes did not play in the first two ODIs, which England lost, and strained his quadriceps during a practice session in Delhi. The duration of his rehabilitation will rule him out of the rest of the series.

Onions' last ODI was the Champions League semi-final against Australia at Centurion in October 2009. His last Test was at Newlands in January 2010.
