Injured fast bowlers Ajmal Shahzad and Chris Tremlett are to return home after they both picked up injuries during England's One-Day International series in Australia.

Shahzad has been ruled out of the remainder of the series with a hamstring strain while Tremlett has a side strain and both will be given time to recover back in England.

Shahzad has been named in England's 15-man World Cup squad and his recovery will be closely monitored ahead of the tournament, which begins on 19th February.

The pair join Tim Bresnan and Graeme Swann in having returned home early due to injury during the course of the series, which Australia lead 5-1 heading to the final match in Perth on 6th February.
