The infection began from a cut suffered during Australia's series-clinching third Test triumph over South Africa in Cape Town earlier this month.

According to Sport24, Cricket Australia (CA) said that the infection, which occurred on his right big toe, had spread to Johnson's right leg and required further treatment, adding that depending on how quickly he recovers, Johnson's next scheduled commitment is the 2014 Indian Premier League where he will represent Kings XI Punjab.

The report mentioned that Johnson's place in the Australian T20 squad was filled by Doug Bollinger, who joined the side in Bangladesh this week ahead of Sunday's opening game with Pakistan.

It has been an arduous few months for Johnson, who spearheaded Australia's 5-0 Ashes Test whitewash of England and then the 2-1 victory over South Africa, the report added.
