Starc to fly early to India
17:13 AEST Fri Feb 8 2013

Australia have altered their travel plans for India, with fast bowler Mitchell Starc to fly to the sub-continent and join the Test squad earlier than expected.

Starc was rested from Friday's fourth one-day international against the West Indies in Sydney and won't travel with the ODI squad for the fifth and final match in Melbourne on Sunday.

The NSW left-armer will fly to India on Saturday to prepare in local conditions for the four-Test series.

Cricket Australia also confirmed Brad Haddin would replace Matt Wade as wicketkeeper for Sunday's final ODI.

Wade is part of the group, which also includes allrounder Glenn Maxwell, that's flying to India on Saturday.

West Australian Nathan Coulter-Nile has joined the Australian ODI squad and will fly to Melbourne as cover for the final match.

Batsman Adam Voges replaced vice-captain George Bailey in Friday's match and will stay with the ODI team for game five.

Bailey has a low-level hamstring problem.
