England all-rounder Tim Bresnan has been ruled out of the remainder of the One-Day International series in Australia after he tore a calf muscle in the second game in Hobart.

MIddlesex fast bowler Steven Finn is now due to remain with the squad for the rest of the tour and Leicestershire searmer Nathan Buck will replace Finn for the England Lions tour of the West Indies.

Despite the injury, Bresnan is expected to recover in time to play in England's World Cup campaign, which begins on 22nd February when they play the Netherlands.

Both Graeme Swann and Stuart Broad picked up injuries during the tour of Australia. England trail Australia 3-0 in the seven-match ODI series.
