Australia's odds of winning the ODI series against India have taken another blow after pace bowler Peter Siddle suffered a side injury.

The Aussies levelled the series 2-2 on Tuesday as Doug Bollinger notched three top-order wickets, to leave Australia on odds of 2.62 for the series at Betfair's online cricket betting market.

Hosts India remain the favourites at 1.67 and could be buoyed by the absence of Siddle, who headed home straight after the problem was assessed.

Siddle bowled five overs during the win in Mohali on Tuesday but after consultation with physiotherapist Kevin Sims, elected a cautious approach following a bout of soreness.

Sims said: "Peter's injury does not appear to be a serious problem but it is unlikely he will be able to safely bowl within the next week, which would therefore not allow him to have any further participation in the tour."

Cricket Australia's selection panel will decided today whether or not to send a replacement out to India.

The fifth tie in the seven-match series takes place in Hyderabad on Thursday, while the sixth is on Sunday in Guwahati before the series ends in Mumbai next Wednesday.
