July 11, 2010 19:07 IST

EnglandĀ called up Ravi Bopara as a replacement for injured batsman Ian Bell for Monday's final one-day international against Bangladesh, the English Cricket BoardĀ said on Sunday.

Bangladesh levelled the series at 1-1 on Saturday after claiming their first ever victory over England in test or one-day internationals, winning by five runs.

Bell fractured a bone in his left foot while fielding in that match and is now unlikely to feature in the four-test series against Pakistan which begins on July 29.

The final one-day international between England and Bangladesh takes place at Edgbaston, Birmingham.
