A nagging elbow injury has forced fast bowler Shaun Tait to withdraw from Australia's ICC World Twenty20 squad.
Australia's chairman of selectors, Andrew Hilditch, confirmed that Tait's right elbow had not recovered as well as had been hoped from surgery in June, and the 24-year-old was experiencing some discomfort.
Tait had worked hard to in a bid to be fit for the inaugural World Twenty20 tournament, to be held in South Africa in September, but will now focus on Australia's short tour of India which also begins next month. Tait took 23 wickets in this year's World Cup, equal second with Sri Lanka's Muttiah Muralitharan, and three behind team-mate Glenn McGrath.
Australia have written to the ICC technical committee seeking approval for Ben Hilfenhaus - a 24-year-old right-arm fast bowler from Tasmania - to be Tait's replacement. Australia's first match in the tournament is on September 12 against Zimbabwe in Cape Town.
Australia squad: Ricky Ponting (Captain), Adam Gilchrist, Nathan Bracken, Stuart Clark, Michael Clarke, Brad Haddin, Matthew Hayden, Brad Hodge, Brad Hogg, Michael Hussey, Mitchell Johnson, Brett Lee, Andrew Symonds, Andrew Hilditch, Shane Watson. Record before the start of World Twenty20 2007:
