Yorkshire's Jonathan Bairstow and Somerset's Jos Buttler have been added to England's squad for the fifth and final One-Day International against India at Cardiff.

Bairstow has been called up as cover for Durham all-rounder Ben Stokes, who is struggling with a finger injury while Buttler is added as batting cover.

England lead the five-match series 2-0 and are aiming to deny India a single win against them all summer, which they will achieve if they avoid defeat at the SWALEC Stadium.

Bairstow is uncapped although he was in the squad for the one-off One-Day International against Ireland earlier this year while Buttler made his international debut in the Twenty20 International against India at Old Trafford, although he wasn't required to bat.

England will also be missing Stuart Broad due to a torn shoulder muscle although no replacement has been named in the squad for the Nottinghamshire pacer, who is also set to miss England's ODI tour of India later this year.

England ODI squad: Alastair Cook (captain), James Anderson, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Jade Dernbach, Steven Finn, Craig Kieswetter, Eoin Morgan, Samit Patel, Ben Stokes, Graeme Swann, Jonathan Trott
