johannesburgAustralia coach Andrew McDonald said after the 2-3 series loss against South Africa that in-form batsman Travis Head has been ruled out of the first half of the tournament due to injury. Head’s finger was injured while batting.
It is being told that he has a fracture in his finger, from which he will take about a month to recover. Australia coach Andrew McDonald confirmed this. Andrew McDonald said that Head suffered a fracture in the finger of his left hand during the fourth ODI, although he will not require surgery. Therefore, he will not be able to play in the first half of the World Cup to be played in India as it will take about a month for him to recover.
McDonald said, ‘There is no doubt that he will not be available for the front half, so we will have to take a decision about the final 15 players. But I can’t give you an exact time frame. Marnus Labuschagne has been included in the team in place of Head, who is in great form these days.
McDonald said of Labuschagne’s World Cup hopes: ‘I can’t speak on behalf of the selection panel and include him in the World Cup 15, but there’s no doubt it looks likely.’Teams 28 Can make changes to her World Cup team by the September deadline.
