Double blow ahead of Pakistan Tests

Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins have been ruled out of Australia's upcoming Test series against Pakistan in the UAE.

Both quicks have failed to overcome lumbar bone stress fractures in time for the series in October. 

In more positive news Mitchell Starc should be available for the two matches. 

Hazlewood and Cummins are now expected to return later in October during the domestic one-day series before lining up for the national side in a 50-over series against South Africa.
