Melbourne:

Australian off-spinner Nathan Hauritz was on Friday ruled out of the remaining three ODIs of a five-match series against England due to a foot injury and the selectors brought in pacer Shaun Tait as his replacement.

"Cricket Australia's National Selection Panel on Friday advised South Australian fast bowler Shaun Tait will replace Nathan Hauritz in Australia's squad for the remaining one-day matches of its VB Tour of England," CA said in a statement.

Hauritz will return to Australia to recover from the injury that hampered him during the first two one-day games against England.

Australian physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said: "Nathan Hauritz has developed pain in his left foot during the first two ODI's against England.

"While the pain was manageable in the first game, it became more severe during the second game. The pain is likely to be related to a previous foot injury and we have decided the best course of action is to withdraw Nathan from the current tour to allow sufficient time for it to recover."

Ryan Harris' will continue to be monitored by CA's medical staff ahead of the third one-day international against England in Manchester on Sunday.

Harris reported soreness in the groin area following the first one-day game against England in Hampshire.

Tait will travel with the team from Cardiff to Manchester on Friday.
