Australia wicketkeeper Brad Haddin has been ruled out of the summer one-day tour of England with an elbow injury.
The 32-year-old sustained the injury in December and aggravated it during the recent ICC World Twenty20.
Haddin remains hopeful he will be available for the Test series against Pakistan in England later in the summer, but the limited-overs contests against England will come too soon.
"It's like having tennis elbow," he told Sydney's Sun-Herald newspaper. "It has gradually deteriorated to the point where I can't hold a bat.
"I had to wait a bit after the World Cup to allow it calm down, it (the tendon) was pretty angry because we played constant cricket.
"I have to basically get the strength back into it and see how it responds."
Haddin added: "I'm hopeful I can be ready for Pakistan, but if I'm not I'll have eight weeks to get the strength back (in time for the Australian summer).
"I have a series of exercises that are designed to do that. The priority has been to calm the problem down because it was so angry after the World Cup.
"That's why it has to be 100 per cent right when I do return. I'm confident it'll be fine, which is a good thing.
"It's a very exciting time in cricket with the Ashes and then the World Cup, and I intend to be a part of it."
