LONDON — England off-spinner Graeme Swann will miss the remaining two games in the one-day series against Australia in order to rest an elbow injury.
"We had earmarked the fourth and fifth matches as an opportunity to rest Graeme ... as we have to consider our preparations for the Test series against South Africa later this month," said national selector Geoff Miller in a statement yesterday.
"Graeme has some pain in his elbow at the moment and we feel an extra
week's rest will allow it to settle."
Jade Dernbach is also to miss the remaining two matches with a side strain.
Pace bowler Chris Woakes, drafted in for the third one-dayer in Birmingham that was washed out on Wednesday, stays in the squad and off-spinner James Tredwell has been called up.
The fourth match is in Durham tomorrow. England lead the series 2-0.
Revised squad: Alastair Cook (capt), Ian Bell, Jonathan Trott, Ravi Bopara, Eoin Morgan, Craig Kieswetter (wkt), Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Steven Finn, James Anderson, James Tredwell, Samit Patel, Chris Woakes, Jonathan Bairstow
