BENGALURU (Reuters) - Australia fast bowler Mitchell Starc has been ruled out of the remaining two tests of the series against India with a stress fracture to his right foot, the country's cricket board said on Friday.

The pace spearhead would return home to begin his rehabilitation, Cricket Australia said in a statement.

The four-match series is tied at 1-1 with the third test, in Ranchi, starting on March 16.
