Injured fast bowler Varun Aaron has been replaced by allrounder Stuart Binny in India's squad for the second and third ODIs against Sri Lanka. Aaron had injured the quadriceps muscle in his right leg while bowling his fifth over in the first ODI in Cuttack.

"Varun is with the team. He will be monitored by the physios, and based on the assessment at the moment he will recover in two weeks' time," BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel told ESPNcricinfo. "We have decided to let him remain with the team only so that the physio can take care of him. That's why in place of him, we have picked Binny."

The replacement decision was taken at a meeting of India's national selectors at the BCCI headquarters in Mumbai on Tuesday. The selectors were also scheduled to pick the squads for the fourth and fifth ODIs against Sri Lanka, and the Test series in Australia, but that selection was "postponed", the BCCI said in a release.
