McDonald & Cockley to join Australia squ

Hyderabad: Andrew McDonald and Burt Cockley will join the Australian squad for the sixth ODI in Guwahati as replacement for Henriques and Peter Siddle who returned home to Australia early Wednesday morning with injuries.

Nursing a hamstring injury, Moises Henriques on Wednesday became the latest Australian to return home midway through the India tour.

All-rounder Henriques hurt his right hamstring in the field during Monday's victory in Mohali and could be flown home with only three games remaining in the series.

Cricket Australia said in a press release that Henriques would return home tonight after suffering a hamstring injury during the fourth ODI in Mohali.

In such a situation, the CA National Selection Panel (NSP) announced that McDonald and Cockley would join the squad for the sixth ODI in Guwahati as replacement players for Henriques and Peter Siddle, who returned home early this morning with stiffness in his left side.
