Huge Blow For Australia, Star Batter Likely To Miss The ODI World Cup 2023

A disappointing piece of news is coming out from the Australian dressing room. Star left-handed batter Travis head who has injured his hand, might not be participating in the upcoming ODI World Cup. Head broke his hand during the ODI match against South Africa on September 15.

Head had to leave the field due to injury after scoring 17 runs from 11 balls, after a delivery from South African fast bowler Gerald Coetzee that hit his hand. Unfortunately, Australia ended up losing the match by a huge margin of 164 runs, as they were bowled out for 252 in response to South Africa’s massive total of 416/5.

Australia’s coach, Andrew McDonald, provided an update on Head’s injury. He stated that the opener’s fracture will undergo further assessment on Saturday.

McDonald said,”It’s a confirmed fracture but as to the nature of the break and what sort of timeframe to heal, that will be assessed tomorrow. He’s going to go in for some more scans tomorrow… We have fingers crossed, clearly with the World Cup, fast approaching,” he said.

He further stated, “I’m not a medical person but I think it’s a bit higher up than the finger itself … it’s in a joint (in the hand) somewhere,” McDonald added while giving further details of the injury.
