The series is currently levelled 1-1 with the final ODI to be played on Sunday.

"Deepak felt mild pain in his lower back following the second ODI played in Vizag on Wednesday. The BCCI medical team examined him and has suggested that the fast bowler needs some rest in order to fully recover," the BCCI said in a statement.

"He has, thus, been ruled out of the final ODI," it added.
