Australia pace spearhead Mitchell Starc is set to miss the limited-overs series against India later this month due to injury, reports said.

Starc, whose recent form with the ball had been a cause of concern for the Australian think-tank, was adjudged man-of-the-match in the second Test against Sri Lanka for his 10-wicket haul.

Starc is also a doubtful starter for the Pakistan series in late March, adding to head-coach Justin Langer's woes especially with the 50-over World Cup around the corner.
