Ishant Sharma Replaces Injured Mohit Sharma in India's ODI Squad

New Delhi: Ishant Sharma has been added to India's ODI squad for the ongoing series against West Indies in place of pace bowler Mohit Sharma.

"Mohit Sharma has aggravated his bilateral shin pain, and has therefore been ruled out of the ongoing series," said the BCCI in a release on Friday.

This marks a return to the ODI setup after nearly ten months for Ishant. His last ODI appearance came in January during the tour of New Zealand, and since then he missed the Asia Cup, a series in Bangladesh and the five ODIs in England. The 26-year-old, who in 72 ODIs has taken 102 wicket, was axed after a poor series against Australia at home in October.

Mohit, 26, has played 11 ODIs and has taken eight wickets at an average of 46.12 and economy of 5.18.

India lost the first ODI to West Indies in Kochi on October 8, during which Mohit conceded 61 runs in nine wicketless overs. The second match is in New Delhi on tomorrow, followed by fixtures in Visakhapatnam, Dharamsala and Kolkata.
