Raina, who last played an ODI for India in October 2015, has been called up after Rayudu failed to clear a fitness test held in Bengaluru on Friday.

“The All-India Senior Selection Committee has named Suresh Raina as Ambati Rayudu’s replacement in India’s ODI squad for the series against England,” the BCCI said on their website.

The 31-year-old is also part of India’s Twenty20 squad to face England.

Starting on July 3, India will play three Twenty20 internationals, three one-dayers and five test matches against England.
