Melboune: Cricket Australia says Mike Hussey has withdrawn from Australia's scheduled tour to England and Ireland because of the premature birth of his fourth child.

Hussey's place on the tour, which starts on June 21 and includes five one-day internationals against England and one against Ireland, will be taken by Peter Forrest.

Hussey said "due to our baby being born three months early, it is important for the family for me to be here at this time. It is always difficult to miss any tour for Australia and I thank CA for their understanding of our family's situation."
