All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been named as a replacement for the injured Gautam Gambhir for the upcoming ODI series against England.

Gambhir, who is suffering from concussion, is returning back to India. He had banged his head on the ground while falling back in attempting to catch Kevin Pietersen on the third day of the final Test at The Oval during England's first innings.
