Uncertain World Cup Participation as Head Suffers Left Hand Fracture in South Australia vs Australia 4th ODI


Sep 16, 2023

During the fourth ODI between Australia and South Africa, Travis Head suffered a fractured left hand after being hit by Gerard Coetzee’s delivery. As a result, Head’s participation in the early games of the World Cup became uncertain. Despite receiving on-field treatment and attempting to continue batting, Head was forced to retire after scoring only three more runs. He was subsequently taken to the hospital for X-rays, which confirmed he had a broken bone. Further tests will determine the severity of his injury and his recovery timeline. Head returned to the field after the match with his hand in a splint, and the team is awaiting more information on his condition. The injury adds to Australia’s list of concerns ahead of the World Cup, with players like Marnus Labuschagne potentially being called up as replacements.
