England will fly home on Friday after the militant attacks in Mumbai, England and Wales Cricket Board managing director Hugh Morris said on Thursday.
"The home environment is the place where we should be for a few days," Morris told Sky Sports News.
Morris said England planned to return for the two-test series next month. England are due to play two Tests from Dec. 11 with the second match scheduled in Mumbai from Dec. 19.
Earlier, Indian cricket board vice-president Lalit Modi said the Test matches would definitely go ahead but the Mumbai match would be moved.
