New Delhi:Australian all-rounder James Hopes has been ruled out of the second ODI of the seven-match series against India after he suffered a right hamstring strain during the first ODI in Vadodara on Sunday.
Apart from Hopes, Australia may also miss out on the services of Brett Lee and Mitchell Johnson.
"James Hopes, Brett Lee and Mitchell Johnson all underwent scans in Baroda this morning," Australian team physiotherapist Kevin Sims said on Monday.
"James has suffered a minor right hamstring strain. He will therefore be unavailable for the next game however is expected to be available for the latter games of this series," he said.
"Brett Lee has a mild right elbow strain and will continue to be treated and assessed prior to the next game. Mitchell Johnson suffered an inversion strain of his left ankle. He will now receive treatment and as with Brett it will depend on how he responds to treatment over the next two days before a decision is made on his availability for the second game of the series," he added.
