SYDNEY: Former Australia captain Steve Smith has pulled out of the upcoming white-ball series against Pakistan comprising three One-day Internationals (March 29, 31 and April 2) and a T20 (April 5) in Lahore. He has been replaced by Queensland leg-spinner Mitchell Swepson in the squad. Swepson is already with the squad in Pakistan for the Test series.

Smith decided to skip the white-ball series to manage some niggling discomfort caused by a slight elbow injury.

The 32-year-old batting star, who was part of the team that won the third Test to emerge winners of the inaugural Benaud-Qadir Trophy 1-0 on Friday, will return home after deciding not to risk aggravating any problem in the left elbow, which he injured last year, according to reports in the Australian media.
