Sydney: Wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade will replace injured Chris Lynn in the Australia A one-day squad for the tour to Zimbabwe in June and July, Cricket Australia said.

Lynn will require finger surgery later this week and cannot make the trip, Cricket Australia physiotherapist Kevin Sims said on Monday.

"Chris will require a period of rehabilitation of two-three months which will make him unavailable for the Australia A tour to Zimbabwe," Sims said.
