Australia wicketkeeper Josh Inglis cuts hand in golf accident days before T20 World Cup | Cricket News


MELBOURNE: Australia wicketkeeper-batsman Josh Inglis is being assessed by the team’s medical staff after sustaining a cut to his right hand in a golfing accident on Wednesday, just days before the team’s T20 World Cup title defense.
Inglis, reserve for regular wicketkeeper Matthew Wade in their 15-man World Cup squad, was injured when a club broke in his hand during a “normal golf swing” while on a morning lap with some of his teammates, a team spokesman said.
Australia opens its title defense against New Zealand in Sydney on Saturday, a rematch of last year’s final in the United Arab Emirates.
Golf has already cost England the services of Jonny Bairstow at the tournament after he was ruled out by a freak injury while playing a round in September. The batsman slipped while on a pitch and required surgery on a broken leg and dislocated ankle.
