Fit-again front-line seamer Finn's inclusion was one of two anticipated changes to the team that levelled the series in Mumbai, Ian Bell also back here in the middle order in place of Jonny Bairstow.

Bell missed the famous victory at the Wankhede Stadium, having returned home because of the birth of his first child.

It was to be Finn who would be in action first, though, after Alastair Cook lost his third successive toss in the series - and England inevitably therefore found themselves bowling first again.

India made one change to the team that lost last week, seamer Ishant Sharma in for off-spinner Harbhajan Singh.
