Australia pace bowler Josh Hazlewood will miss the second One-Day International against England in Brisbane due to a viral illness.

The 27-year-old, who was rested for the first game in Melbourne has headed back to his home in Sydney to continue his recovery.

With Pat Cummins also originally rested for the game, Australia are all set to hand Jyhe Richardson his debut with Mitchell Starc and Andrew Tye being the other pacers.

Richardson has already played two Twenty20 Internationals for Australia but is yet to make an appearance in the other two formats. However, he has been impressive for Western Australia in the Sheffield Shield and the Perth Scorchers in the ongoing Big Bash League matches as well.

Following their five-wicket defeat to England in the first game in Melbourne, Australia will look to settle scores when they take on Eoin Morgan's side in the second ODI in Brisbane on Friday.
