Ben Hilfenhaus has been named to replace Shaun Tait for Australia's tour of India after Tait failed to recover from his elbow surgery in time.
Chairman of selectors Andrew Hilditch said "Unfortunately Shaun hasn't recovered in time from his surgery to be able to take part in the upcoming tour to India."
Hilditch went onto say "He is however expected to make a complete recovery in the next few weeks and commence preparation for what is going to be a very exciting Australian domestic summer."
"His prime focus now is to prepare with a view towards making himself available for selection in the first Test of the summer against Sri Lanka." Discuss this news item in the Cricket Web Forums
