Injured Hopes to fly home from India ODI series

NEW DELHI: Injured Australian all rounder James Hopes will fly home after becoming the latest in the squad to be forced out of the one-day series in India.

Uncapped Victorian paceman Clinton McKay will replace the injured Brett Lee while all rounder Moises Henriques will stay on having come in as cover, a Cricket Australia release said on Sunday.

Hopes injured his hamstring during the first ODI and missed the next two, which India won to lead 2-1 in the seven-game series. The fourth game is scheduled in Mohali on Monday.

Australian stand-in stumper Tim Paine broke a finger and has been replaced by Graham Manou while first choice Brad Haddin and vice-captain Michael Clarke did not make the tour due to injuries.
