Australia spinner Ashton Agar has been ruled out of the last two One-Day Internationals (ODIs) against India after fracturing his right little finger while fielding in the third ODI in Indore on Sunday (September 24).
Agar injured his finger while putting in a dive to stop a Rohit Sharma pull shot from reaching the boundary in the 17th over of India’s chase (of 294). Agar couldn’t succeed in denying India the four runs and ended up needing attention of the physio.
During the third ODI match in Indore, the left-arm spinner injured his little finger on the other hand whilst trying to stop a boundary. He walked out of the field, got it strapped and returned for his second spell and thereby finish off with his quota of 10 overs.
But only on Monday, things became a little clear that the 23-year-old will be missing out on the last two ODI matches and head back home for recovery.
Agar’s absence, Adam Zampa has the opportunity to make a return back to the squad. After a thorough thrashing by Hardik Pandya in the first ODI in Chennai, the young leggie was asked to warm the bench ahead of the Eden Gardens battle.
