Brisbane, Australia:

Opening batsman Matthew Hayden will miss Australia's limited overs cricket series against Bangladesh starting on Saturday because of an Achilles tendon injury.

Australian team medical staff made a decision Monday to rest Hayden for the three match series in the northern city of Darwin to allow him to continue rehabilitation at his home in Brisbane.

Hayden aims to be fit for Australia's next major assignment, a four-test tour of India.

The Australian team, minus Hayden, injured captain Ricky Ponting and fast bowler Brett Lee who has been granted time off after the break up of his marriage, assembled in Brisbane on Monday for a two-day camp before heading to Darwin.

Michael Clarke will lead the team in Ponting's absence.
