England coach Duncan Fletcher had to leave India on Saturday in order to accompany his ill wife back to their home in South Africa.
It is only a temporary absence from the tour for Fletcher as he is expected to return from their trip to Cape Town before play starts in Monday's third one-day international against India in Goa.
Assistant coach Matthew Maynard has taken charge of the team in the interim.
Families of the tourists, who have been on a nine-week tour, have been in India for the past two weeks.
Meanwhile, England's Ian Blackwell believes the team can bounce back from its losses in the first two games.
"On reflection, we thought we should have won both the games," he told BBC Sport.
"If we were a little more ruthless, then we could have probably been in a different position.
"But we are a young side and we just blew it, I guess. I hope we have shown that they are not unbeatable."
England's one-day form is a concern as it has lost seven of its last 10 one-dayers.
