England women's spinner Sophie Ecclestone has been ruled out of the remainder of their tour of India and Sri Lanka with a broken hand.

The 19-year-old picked up an injury in the warm-up for their second ODI but opted to play. England lost by seven wickets.

The defeat meant India took an unassailable 2-0 lead in their three-match series, with a replacement for Eccelstone set to be named after their final ODI on Thursday.

Ecclestone sits at number 45 in the T20 Women's Index having taken 51 wickets and maintained an economy of 6.34 over the past three years.

She is not the first England spinner to be ruled out by injury, with fellow spinners Laura Marsh and Kristie Gordon also out injured.

There is hope that Marsh will, however, be available by the time the England team travel to Sri Lanka.
