Stuart Broad, England’s Twenty20 captain, and Steven Finn have been ruled out of the two-match T20 international series against India and will fly home to the UK. Broad had suffered a recurrence of the heel problem picked up earlier on the tour, while Finn strained a disc in his back during the third Test. Eoin Morgan will lead the T20 side in Broad’s absence.

Middlesex seamer James Harris, a member of the England Performance Programme (EPP) squad currently in Pune, where the first T20I will be played on December 20, has been added to the squad.
