Hyderabad, Oct 3 (UNI) Australia's inexperienced spin attack suffered another big blow as the CA today stated that leg spinner Bryce McGain would return home after he failed to recover from a right shoulder injury sustained in India last month.

CA said in a statement that McGain had failed to recover from his right shoulder injury suffered during last month's Australia A tour of India.

''A decision on a potential replacement player for McGain would be taken in due course,'' the statement said.

Physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said the decision to send McGain home was made after it has been clear that the leg spinner would not be able to bowl for the majority of the tour.

''Bryce's injury was first sustained in an Australia A match in September and despite his workload being managed throughout the early stages of this tour, he suffered a setback at training on Tuesday in an attempt to be available for Australia's four-day match currently being played in Hyderabad,'' the physio said.

''As a result, it has been decided that Bryce will not be available for selection for the majority of the tour,'' Kountouris added.
