Rahane out of series

Ind-Eng 4th Test starts today

India middle-order batsman Ajinkya Rahane has been ruled out of the last two Tests against England with a fractured finger while fast bowler Mohammed Shami is also doubtful for the fourth match at the Wankhede Stadium, beginning on Thursday.

The 28-year-old Rahane, who has had a modest series so far, was hit by a ball during Wednesday's practice and sustained an avulsion fracture on his right index finger.

Batsman Manish Pandey has replaced Rahane in the squad, with paceman Shardul Thakur named as a back-up for Shami, who has a sore knee and will be assessed before the start of the penultimate match of the five-Test series.

Keaton Jennings will make his England debut as captain Alastair Cook's latest opening partner.
