Aussie Tait misses World Twenty20

Australia paceman Shaun Tait will miss September's World Twenty20 in South Africa after failing to recover from an operation on his right elbow in June.

Tait took 23 wickets as the Aussies retained the World Cup earlier this year, but will be replaced in the squad by fellow 24-year-old Ben Hilfenhaus.

Chairman of selectors Andrew Hilditch said: "This is disappointing for Shaun after such a successful World Cup.

"The flip side is a great opportunity for a good young fast bowler."

He added: "Ben is highly regarded and the chance to be part of an Australian touring squad will greatly assist his development."

Hilditch hopes Tait will be fit to play in the seven-match one-day series in India, which starts on 29 September.
