LONDON: Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has been ruled out of the World Test Championship final against India.
The five-day final starts on Wednesday at The Oval.
The 32-year-old is struggling with an Achilles issue plus a side injury, which saw him miss much of the Indian Premier League.
Hazlewood, however, remains in contention for the first Ashes Test against England which starts at Edgbaston on 16 June.
Michael Neser comes into the squad for the final.
