Hyderabad:

All-rounder Moises Henriques will miss Thursday's fifth ODI against India after hurting his hamstring, thus dealing another blow to Australia who have already lost key players to injuries.

"Henriques has suffered a right hamstring injury and will not be playing tomorrow's ODI," Australia coach Tim Nielsen told reporters here.

The New South Wales player had come as a replacement for James Hopes, who returned home after picking up a similar injury during the first one-dayer at Vadodara.

Every passing match has multiplied Australia's injury problems in the ongoing series. The world champions landed here a depleted side, missing vice-captain and middle-order mainstay Michael Clarke.

It became worse thereafter as pace spearhead Brett Lee, all-rounder Hopes, wicketkeeper Time Paine and Peter Siddle headed home after picking up different injuries.
