India have called up Sulakshana Naik and Diana David for the remaining ODIs against England, to replace Nooshin Al Khadeer and Thirush Kamini in the squad of 14.

While wicketkeeper Naik last featured in the semi-final of the Women's World Twenty20 against New Zealand in June last year, David makes her return to the national fold after nearly six years.

Offspinner Al Khadeer failed to pick up any wickets in the first two ODIs, going for 56 in the combined 10 overs while Kamini managed 28 in the first match, and retired hurt on 2 in the second.

The series is currently tied at 1-1 and the third and fourth ODIs will be played in Visakhapatnam on February 24 and 26. The fifth one-dayer and the first of three Twenty20 internationals, which were to be played at the MIG Club and DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai on March 1 and 4 respectively, have been shifted to the BKC in Mumbai, the BCCI stated in a release.
