Kolkata, Jan 21 : England wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow has replaced injured Alex Hales in the cricket squad for the three Twenty20 Intertiols (T20Is) to be played against India from January 26.

Hales fractured his right hand while attempting a catch during the second One-Day Intertiol (ODI) in Cuttack on Thursday, ruling himself out of the third ODI as well as the T20I series.

His replacement, Bairstow, was already part of the ODI squad and will now remain in India till the end of the tour.

The England team announced the inclusion of Bairstow in the T20 squad on its Twitter handle.

While Bairstow is yet to feature in the ODI series, he kept wickets for all five Test matches that preceded the limited overs series. IANS
