Johannesburg. Australia coach Andrew McDonald said after the 2-3 series defeat against South Africa that in-form batsman Travis Head has been ruled out of the first half of the tournament due to injury.

Head got injured in his finger while batting during the Australian innings in the fourth ODI on Friday.

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 reported that Head suffered a fractured finger on 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.

“There’s no doubt he won’t be available at front half, so we’ll have to make a decision about the final 15 players. But I can’t give you an exact time frame,” McDonald said.

Marnus Labuschagne has been included in the team in place of Head, who is in excellent 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 can make changes to their World Cup squad until the deadline of September 28.
