Dernbach out of Australia series
06:27 AEST Tue Jul 3 2012

England's Jade Dernbach will miss the remainder of the one-day cricket series against Australia because of a side strain.

The Surrey seam bowler injured himself in Sunday's second match of five, on his home ground of The Oval, where a six-wicket win gave England a 2-0 lead.

Dernbach was already due to miss Wednesday's third one-day international against Australia at Edgbaston on compassionate grounds.

He and fellow England squad member Stuart Meaker are due to attend Wednesday the funeral of their former Surrey team-mate Tom Maynard, who died at the age of 23 in an incident on a London Undeground train line last month.

Earlier on Monday, Warwickshire seamer Chris Woakes was called up to cover the absences of Meaker and Dernbach.

First-choice fast bowler James Anderson missed Sunday's match with a groin injury, and his participation in the rest of the series remains uncertain.

The England and Wales Cricket Board confirmed Dernbach's side injury in a statement issued Monday that also said: "A rehabilitation and recovery programme will be established alongside Surrey CCC in the coming days following further medical assessment."

England plan to announce a replacement for Dernbach after Wednesday's match in Birmingham.
