Nicola Shaw, the England medium-pacer, has been ruled out of the forthcoming international series against India due to suspected ligament damage in her right knee. Shaw, the Nottinghamshire bowler, is awaiting the results from a scan she underwent yesterday.

Shaw, 24, sustained the injury during the final round of matches for the women's County Championship. Laura Marsh, the Sussex fast bowler, has been drafted in as her replacement following successful performances throughout the Super 4s and in the County Championship.

England host India for two Tests and five one-dayers, the first of which gets underway tomorrow at Dublin.
