Steven Finn is out of England's first Test match against India with a thigh injury.

England bowler Steve Finn has been ruled out of his country's first Test with India due to a thigh injury.

The Middlesex paceman did not take part in training on Tuesday having sustained the problem during his side's warm-up match against India A.

The first Test gets underway in Ahmedabad on Thursday, and captain Alastair Cook has confirmed that his teammate won't be back in time for the match.

"Steven will not be available for tomorrow's Test", said Cook. "It would be too big a risk."

Tim Bresnan is expected to be named as Finn's replacement.
