Tait undergoes shoulder operation
Shaun Tait
Australia hope Tait will be back in action in the near future
Australia pace bowler Shaun Tait has undergone surgery on his right shoulder in Adelaide after being forced to pull out of the ICC Super Series.

Tait, who made his Test debut during the recent Ashes series in England, was suffering from a cartilage problem.

But Australia's team doctor, Treford James, said: "The injury was not as extensive as had been anticipated.

"He will be able to resume playing sooner than had been initially expected," he added.

A Cricket Australia statement said Tait would being a rehabilitation programme and his progress would be closely monitored.

Australia have a busy few months ahead with home Test series against West Indies and South Africa and a three-match one-day series in New Zealand.

Tait took five wickets in two Test appearances in England, but did enough to show why he is regarded as Australia's most exciting fast bowling prospect and consistently achieved speeds of over 90mph.
