Australia have suffered a setback after it was confirmed that leg-spinner Bryce McGain will not feature in the upcoming Test series with India due to a shoulder injury.

The 36-year-old failed to recover from the injury he suffered during last month's Australia 'A' tour of India, dealing a blow to the tourists' inexperienced spin attack.

Cricket Australia confirmed that a replacement for McGain has yet to be decided, although it is unlikely that Andrew Symonds will be recalled.

"A decision on a potential replacement player for McGain would be taken in due course," the statement said.

McGain had been included in the absence of seasoned spinners. Off-break bowler Jason Krejza is the other specialist spinner in the squad.

The first of the four Tests starts in Bangalore on October 9 live on Sky Sports 1.
