Australia’s Tait sidelined following elbow surgery

Melbourne: Australia paceman Shaun Tait will miss the one-day series against India after undergoing elbow surgery that will keep him out of action for at least two months, Australia’s cricket board said on Friday.

“Shaun Tait underwent corrective elbow surgery this afternoon for a chronic elbow complaint and his return to cricket will be determined by the speed of his recovery from surgery,” Cricket Australia doctor Trefor James said in a statement.

“It is not anticipated he will be able to play within the next two months.” The 27-year-old opted to have surgery on the long-standing right elbow complaint after it had recently worsened.

Following a two-test series against India, which started in Mohali on Friday, Australia will play three one-day internationals later this month.
