Tim Bresnan has been ruled out of England's upcoming Test series with Pakistan because of an elbow complaint.
The bowler underwent surgery on the problem last month in the hope that the problem would have subsided by the time that the squad travelled to Dubai.
However, Bresnan complained of soreness during a recent practice session and missed the friendly fixture against an ICC Combined Associate and Affiliate XI this weekend.
No replacement has been called for the 26-year-old, meaning that Graham Onions, who was on the trip as a reserve, will become the a full member of the travelling party.
England captain Andrew Strauss went on to tell Sky Sports News that he was hopeful that Bresnan would be available for the one-day series.
