Australian pace duo to miss upcoming Tests
Australian fast bowlers Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood have been ruled out of the Test series against Pakistan, to be played in the UAE.
The pair are yet to recover from their back injuries and are currently undergoing rehabilitation.
Meanwhile, left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc is expected to be fit for selection after recovering from a leg injury.
The two-test series is scheduled for October.
It comes at a time when Australia is looking to recover from the ball-tampering controversy and their poor record in Asia.
