Australian all-rounder Ashton Turner sustained a fracture on his index finger during a session at the Marsh Cup. The cricketer is most likely to miss T20I series against Sri Lanka scheduled to between 27 October – 8 November, and the series against Pakistan. It is reported that Turner will be out of action for four to six weeks.
“Ashton Turner sustained a fracture to his right index finger at training this week. After reviewing the injury with specialists, he will require a period of approximately four-six weeks before being able to return to play,” said Nick Jones, Manager from WACA sports science medicine.
Turners’ injury is a huge setback for the Australian team, considering that he has been in a remarkable form this year. Turner was part of Australian team against India earlier this year where he was highly appreciated for his finishing skills. He showcased exceptional talent in Mohali where Australia pulled off a fabulous chase.
He started off the season brilliantly with a half-century in the opening match of Marsh Cup against Victoria and had a promising chance for up-coming assignments.
