London: England paceman James Kirtley was ruled out of the rest of the triangular One-day series after sustaining a hand injury during a practice session at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The Sussex paceman suffered a dislocation in his right hand when he tried to catch Jeremy Snape off his own bowling in the nets. Kirtley has played in all of England's four triangular series matches against India and Sri Lanka.

He was forced to remodel his action after being reported to the International Cricket Council (ICC) during October's tour to Zimbabwe. England is not expected to call up a replacement to the squad. Surrey fast bowler Alex Tudor is now in line to make his One-day International debut, against Sri Lanka at Old Trafford, in Sunday's triangular series match.
