Australia's Hayden Doubtful For Sixth One-Dayer

Australia opener Matthew Hayden is doubtful for the sixth one-day international against India on Sunday after injuring his hip in the last match in Baroda on Thursday.

"At the moment we are just going to give him till tomorrow morning and see if he pulls up okay," Australia captain Ricky Pointing told a news conference on Saturday.

"If he does, obviously he'll play, if he doesn't then we'll have to bring back Brad Haddin into the team."

Hayden, 35, is the world champions' highest run-scorer with 290 runs. Australia lead 3-1 in the seven-match series after the opening game was washed out.
