Wicketkeeper-batsman Craig Kieswetter is set to lose his place to Somerset team-mate Jos Buttler come England's fourth ODI against India in Mohali on Wednesday.
Kieswetter has averaged an inadequate 30.62 in a dozen matches this year, with a duck in the third ODI last week epitomising his fragile stretch of form.
Buttler, meanwhile, has shown great promise in the T20I team - and this week emerged as England's new first-choice wicketkeeper-batsman in ODI competition in the absence of the unavailable Jonny Bairstow.
The 22-year-old undertook extensive wicketkeeping drills at practice on Tuesday, and the session ended with him donning the gloves alongside slip fielders Alastair Cook and James Tredwell.
"I guess as a bowler you do like to have a relationship with the 'keeper, that's great, but unfortunately in the cut and thrust of sport you don't often get to do it like that," said Tredwell.
"Teams do chop and change. We'll see what happens. Jos is a talented boy. I've not seen a lot of him keeping but I've seen him with the bat. I imagine if he's got anywhere near the talent with the gloves that he does with the bat he'll be fine."
Fast bowler Steven Finn is likely to play in the penultimate fixture of the five-match series, which the hosts lead two-one, after recovering from a minor finger injury.
