England made one change for the fourth one-day international against India, with Jos Buttler replacing Somerset colleague Craig Kieswetter behind the stumps.

Buttler has played just one ODI before, as a specialist batsman, but has been drafted into the side in place of the misfiring Kieswetter, who has been short of confidence and runs.

Jade Dernbach, meanwhile, was retained despite speculation that he would make way for Stuart Meaker. Dernbach has been expensive so far in this series, but England have kept faith with the Surrey man on what they hope will be a helpful deck for seamers. India won the toss in foggy conditions and inserted England, whose batting has failed in the last two matches.

The home side, who can clinch the series with victory, dropped Ajinkya Rahane but surprisingly called on Rohit Sharma instead of Cheteshwar Pujara.
