Injuries hit Australia hard

Justin Langer, Shaun Tait and Michael Kasprowicz will return home after sustaining injuries during the South Africa Test series.

Mitchell Johnson, Phil Jaques and Jason Gillespie have replaced them for the up-coming tour of Bangladesh, where Australia play two Test matches. The first Test starts on 9th April in Dhaka.

Langer is forced home due to concussion he stuffed after a blow to the head in the first innings of the third Test against South Africa, while Tait and Kasprowicz have both picked up back injuries.
