Australia's main strike bowler Mitchell Starc was ruled out of the ongoing tour of India on Friday after suffering a stress fracture to his right foot, the team physiotherapist said.

"Mitchell experienced some pain in his right foot during the second Test in Bangalore which unfortunately had not subsided a few days after the Test as we had hoped," the physio David Beakley said in a Cricket Australia statement.

"We made the decision to scan his foot in Bangalore this morning and unfortunately it has revealed a stress fracture."
