Stuart Broad and Andrew Flintoff both suffered injuries during the fifth match of the seven-game series, a six-wicket defeat in Cuttack.

Broad left the field part-way through his ninth over due to a left hamstring problem, while Flintoff turned his left ankle - on which he has previously had four operations - for the second game in a row.

Mahmood and Khan are both currently in India as part of England's performance programme squad.

Lancashire's Mahmood, who has made 25 one-day international appearances, is back in favour for the first time since the 2007 World Cup, while Kent paceman Khan - born in Copenhagen - is included for the first time.

England have yet to win on tour and trail India 5-0 ahead of the final two matches in Guwahati on Saturday and Delhi three days later.
