According to a report in Hindustan Times, the Indian opener is nursing a glute problem and has left for home along with Zaheer for treatment, according to team officials.
The explosive batsman had also missed the final ODI because of the problem.
Zaheer will be spending time at the National Cricket Academy to prepare for the upcoming two-Test series against New Zealand, starting in Hyderabad on August 23.
