Melbourne, Aug 30: All rounder Andrew Symonds has been sent home from the Australian one-day team to meet Bangladesh in Darwin, Cricket Australia (CA) said on Saturday.
Symonds was sent home following a recommendation by the team leadership group late on Friday, CA said in a statement.
It did not give a reason for his departure but said it would discuss the issue at the post-game press conference following the first one-day international on Saturday.
Symonds has been in trouble with team management in the past over his behaviour.
He was left out of the team for a one-day match against Bangladesh during Australia's tour of England in 2005 after arriving for the game under the influence of alcohol.
Australia are due to play Bangladesh in three one-day internationals, all in Darwin, including further matches next Wednesday and on Sept. 6.
