Mumbai: Mohammed Shami and Wriddhiman Saha have been ruled out of the fifth and final Test scheduled to be played in Chennai from December 16 to 20 due to injuries.

Shami has been in trouble due to an injury on his right leg since the first Test of the series, but the paceman somehow managed to play first three matches of the five-Test series between India and England.

"The medical team of BCCI has confirmed that Mohammed Shami and Wriddhiman Saha have been ruled out of the fifth Test match of the Paytm Test Series-2016, scheduled to start on December 16, 2016, against England in Chennai," said Board secretary Ajay Shirke.

The BCCI, in a release, had confirmed the report saying, "Shami has soreness in his right knee and has been advised rest and rehabilitation. He will be sent to the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru to begin his recovery programme."

"Saha who suffered a hamstring tendon injury in the Vizag Test against England, is undergoing rehabilitation programme at the NCA," added the release.

Parthiv Patel was included in the squad for injured Saha in the third Test (Mohli) while Bhuvneshwar Kumar made it to the playing XI in fourth Test (Mumbai) after Shami was declared unfit.
