Perth Scorchers all-rounder Ashton Agar is ruled out of the next Sydney Sixers game. The Australian all-rounder is ruled out due to an ankle injury for tonight’s match. Agar is in good form in the ongoing season as he has scored 58 runs and has scalped five wickets.
Meanwhile, the two-times champions Perth Scorchers is at the bottom of the points table. Scorchers haven’t ticked the right boxes in this season as they have won only two matches out of the seven they have played in this season. Thus, their chances to qualify for the next stage is bleak.
Ashton Agar is been replaced by 19-year old Cameron Green. In fact, Cameron Green is yet to make his debut for the Perth Scorchers. However, the prodigy batsman has impressed with his skills while playing for Western Australia. Green made his debut in 2017 in the Sheffield Shield and would like to hit the ground running.
Green had recently scored a fine unbeaten 119 from 145 balls for Subiaco-Floreat in the WACA Premier competition. On the other hand, Ashton Agar should be fit for Friday’s game against table-toppers Hobart Hurricanes.
“Ash sustained a moderate grade right ankle lateral ligament injury whilst fielding in the last BBL match against the Melbourne Stars, and did not pass a fitness test last night,” sports medicine manager Nick Jones said.
“He will continue his rehabilitation with the aim of being available for our next BBL match against Hobart.”
Meanwhile, Perth Scorchers opener Michael Klinger stays in the squad despite suffering from the rib injury which was sustained in training this week.
Perth Scorchers will take on Sydney Sixers today at Optus Stadium.
