Bowlers Steven Finn and Stuart Broad were left out of England's final warm-up match on Thursday as the pace duo race against time to be fit for the first Test against India starting on Nov 15.

Finn has a thigh injury which makes him doubtful for the Test in Ahmedabad while Broad is nursing a bruised heel.

England also rested pace spearhead James Anderson and went into the four-day match against Haryana without their four frontline bowlers.
