Jonny Bairstow has flown home early from India for family reasons

Bairstow, left out of Thursday night's first Twenty20 International in Pune when England preferred Jos Buttler to keep wicket, subsequently discovered during that match that he was needed at home.

The Yorkshireman will be unavailable for Saturday's tour-ending final Twenty20 in Mumbai, having flown to England on Friday morning.
