Chennai: Australia's right-arm fast-medium bowler Jackson Bird will be flying back to his country within the next 24 hours to undergo "precautionary scans" after he reported of back pain.

"Jackson has reported some low level back pain and we feel the best course of action to determine the issue is to send him back to Australia for scans," Australian team doctor Peter Brukner said.

"If the scans come back clear, then he will return to India to take up his place with the squad," he added, according to a Cricket Australia release.
