Siddle Injured Out of the Series

Peter Siddle
Australia's fast bowler Peter Siddle will miss the last three games of the one-day series against India with a side injury.

Siddle will be sent home after being injured in the series-levelling 24-run win on Monday, in which he bowled just five overs.

Colleague bowlers Brett Lee and James Hopes have previously returned home with injuries and experienced pacer Nathan Bracken was ruled out before the series even began.

Cricket Australia has yet to give a replacement for Siddle.

"Peter's hurt does not appear to be a serious trouble but it is unlikely he will be able to safely bowl within the next week, which would therefore not allow him to have any further contribution in the tour," said team physio Kevin Sims.
