Injured fast bowler Umesh Yadav has been ruled out for India's last two one-dayers against England and will be replaced by seamer Abhimanyu Mithun, the Indian board said on Friday.

Yadav hurt the webbing of his left hand while fielding during Thursday's third match in Mohali, which India won by five wickets to take a decisive 3-0 lead in the five-match series.

Mithun, who turns 22 on Tuesday when the fifth one-dayer will be played in Kolkata, has so far claimed nine wickets in four Tests, but he is as yet wicketless in one-dayers, having played two matches.

India also have two uncapped players, fast bowler Varun Aaron and leg-spinner Rahul Sharma, in their one-day squad for the fourth match in Mumbai on Sunday.
