Adelaide: Young paceman James Pattinson will miss Australia's remaining four Tests this season with a side strain, Cricket Australia said on Sunday.

Pattinson failed to complete an over and left the field for scans on a side strain during Saturday's third day's play of the second Adelaide Test against South Africa.

The news was not good Sunday for the 22-year-old fast bowler, playing in his seventh Test. He will take no further part in Australia's remaining Test against South Africa in Perth later this week and the three-Test home series against Sri Lanka.
