England's struggling one-day squad in India suffered a blow Wednesday when seamer Chris Woakes was ruled out of the rest of the tour with a thigh injury.

Woakes, 22, did not play in the first two games of the five-match series, which India won, but was expected to be in contention for Thursday's must-win third international in Mohali.

"Woakes has been ruled out of the remainder of England's tour of India due to a left quadriceps strain," the England Cricket Board (ECB) said in a statement.

"Woakes suffered the injury on Sunday during practice in Delhi and will now undertake a rehabilitation period that rules him out of the remaining three one-dayers against India."

Woakes has seven wickets from four one-day internationals, including a haul of 6-45 against Australia in Brisbane earlier this year.

Durham's Graham Onions, who will replace Woakes, will join the squad in Mumbai ahead of the fourth one-dayer on October 23.

England are also due to play a Twenty20 international in Kolkata on October 29 at the end of the one-day series.
