Wicket-keeper batsman Naman Ojha will replace an injured Wriddhiman Saha in the India squad for remainder of the five-match Test series in England, the BCCI said on Thursday.

“The All-India Senior Selection Committee has picked Naman Ojha as his (Saha’s) replacement. Ojha will join the squad at the earliest,” said BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel in a statement.

Ojha has been rewarded for scoring three centuries including a double hundred in the recently concluded four-day matches against Australia A.

The series is tied at 1-1 after England won the third Test by 266 runs in Southampton on Thursday.
