Australia fast bowlers Brett Lee and Mitchell Johnson have been ruled out of the Twenty20 match against England on Tuesday, Cricket Australia said.
Lee has a chest infection and Johnson a stomach injury. They were replaced in the squad for the game at the Sydney Cricket Ground by fast bowler Shane Harwood and all-rounder James Hopes.
"The assessment of both players will continue over the next few days to determine whether they will be fit for the first triangular series match against England in Melbourne on Friday," team physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said in a statement.
