Due to personal reasons, England leg spinner Rehan Ahmed will return home early from his India tour. England have chosen not to disclose a replacement for him for the last fixture.

The 19-year-old has taken 11 wickets in all three Test matches, second only to Tom Hartley in England’s tour total. His count incorporates a six-wicket pull in Vizag. England nonetheless selected to bring back finger spinner Shoaib Bashir for the vital fourth Test in Ranchi.

Ahmed was preparing just before the Ranchi Test, but he needed to go with the choice to return to home base. England go into the Ranchi game expecting to win to keep the series alive and take it to the last fixture in Dharamsala, which starts on March 7.
