Shane Warne has been forced out of Australia's tour to India, while Mark Taylor confirmed that he will captain the side.

Warne's recovery has been slower than expected after surgery on a finger on his bowling hand. The leg-spinner has been replaced by South Australia's Peter McIntyre in the 14-man squad, which flies out on Tuesday.

India's Cricket Control Board have sacked the team manager, Sandip Patil, after the side's recent disappointing performances. Madan Lal, the former Test all-rounder, has been appointed as Patil's replacement.
