Australian fast bowler Doug Bollinger will return home as he has been ruled out of the remaining World Cup matches with an ankle injury.

Physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said the left-arm pacer will seek specialist opinion to determine the best course of management for his injury.

"Doug Bollinger has been experiencing increasing left ankle pain since arriving in India. Unfortunately, the pain is now significantly affecting his ability to bowl and he will not be playing any further part in the tournament," said Kountouris in a statement.

Cricket Australia's National Selection Panel will decide on a replacement in due course and this will be announced once approved by the International Cricket Council's technical committee.
