Bumrah has been released from the Indian squad for the fourth Test against England in Ranchi, Jharkhand, giving the Gujarat pacer some rest after three successive matches.

Meanwhile, middle order batsman K.L Rahul is ruled out of the fourth Test. His participation in the final Test match in Dharamsala is subject to fitness.
