Australia opener Aaron Finch has been ruled out of the warm-up game against the Board President's XI which is to be played on September 12 (tomorrow) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium as he continues to manage a calf injury.

However, Finch is in no doubt for the series opener against India to be played on September 17.

As media reports suggest, Australia have taken a conservative approach by resting the right-hander for the one-day tour game.

The 30-year-old injured his calf playing for Surrey in England six weeks ago. Since then, he has been working closely with physiotherapist Alex Kountouris in order to be fit for the series opener which would be played on Sunday in Chennai.

All-rounder Hilton Cartwright is also in doubt and can miss the game. He missed the training session on Monday and final call on his selection will be taken on Tuesday morning.
