Lee out of first two one-dayers

Australian fast bowler Brett Lee has been ruled out of the first two one-day matches against England and New Zealand due to a chest infection.

Lee missed his sides 77 run victory over England in their Twenty20 match because of the bug and will not fly into Melbourne with the rest of the side, instead staying in Sydney to seek medical treatment, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Tasmanian Ben Hilfenhaus has been called into the side as a replacement, but is unlikely to play in Friday’s day-nighter at the MCG.
