Hayden missed the opening Test of the series because of injury
Australia batsman Matthew Hayden will miss the rest of their Test series against the West Indies after failing to recover from an Achilles injury.
He missed the first Test in Kingston, which Australia won by 95 runs, and will return home for treatment.
The second match of the three-Test series starts in Antigua on Friday.
"Matthew Hayden's right Achilles tendon injury has not made sufficient progress," said Australian team physio Alex Kountouris.
"With the large volume of cricket to be played over the next 18 months it was decided he should return to Australia to undergo rehabilitation and consult specialists," he added.
"This means he will (also) not be available for the five one-day internationals against West Indies."
The 36-year-old left-handed opening batsman is one of Australia's most experienced players, and was the leading run-scorer at 2007 World Cup.
With Hayden going home, Brad Hodge will stay with the Test squad and Cricket Australia will make a decision later on who will replace the opener in the one-day squad.
Michael Clarke, who missed the victory at Sabina Park as he was on compassionate leave, will be available for the second Test, with Hodge or Simon Katich standing down.
