    Mumbai: Opener Shikhar Dhawan was ruled out of the fourth and final Test against Australia starting on Friday because of a fracture on his left hand that he suffered while fielding during the Mohali Test. The national selectors initially named both Gautam Gambhir and Suresh Raina in the squad but the former had to pull out after being diagnosed with jaundice.
    The BCCI said in a statement that Gautam Gambhir, who was omitted from the initial squad for the four-match series due to a prolonged form slump, was included in the team but he could not be available due to jaundice.
    "The All India Senior Selection Committee added Gautam Gambhir and Suresh Raina to the squad for the fourth Test. However, Gambhir has been diagnosed with jaundice, after undergoing a blood test, earlier today. The official announcement of the team was delayed, as the Board was waiting for the copy of report," BCCI Secretary Sanjay Jagdale said in the release.

    Squad: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain), Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Ravindra Jadeja, Harbhajan Singh, R Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ajinkya Rahane, Ashok Dinda, Suresh Raina, Ishant Sharma.
