    Melbourne: Indian origin cricketer Gurinder Sandhu has been included in the Australia A squad as a stand-by for injured pacer Josh Hazlewood.

    Hazlewood suffered a side strain in Australia A's win over India A at Darwin on Sunday and has been ruled out of the quadrangular series also involving South Africa A and Cricket Australia's (CA) National Performance Squad (NPS).

    Part of the NPS squad, Sandhu is on stand-by for Australia A, said a CA statement.

    Also, Tom Cooper replaced Phil Hughes in the Australia A squad as the latter returned home due to a death in his family. Hughes will re-join the squad in Darwin at a later date.

    The next match of the series will be played between India A and South Africa A at the Gardens Oval in Darwin on Tuesday.
