Raina to replace Dhawan

Suresh Raina will replace Shikhar Dhawan, who has been ruled out of the fourth and last Test against Australia, scheduled to held at his home ground Ferozshah Kotla here from March 22-26, owing to a fracture in his left hand. He will be out of action for six weeks.

The All-India Senior Selection Committee initially  added Gautam Gambhir and Raina to the squad for the fourth Test.

But Gambhir was diagnosed with jaundice after he went for the blood test earlier in the day and therefore cannot take part in the Delhi Test.

"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 the report," BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale said.

India lead the four-Test series 3-0, having won the first three matches.

The team: MS 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.
