Australian batsman Ashton Turner got injured during the training at the Marsh Cup 2019. His right-hand index finger got fractured and is likely to recover in the next four to six weeks.

He has proven to be a crucial player. In Mohali ground earlier this year, he scored unbeaten 84 runs off 43 balls and helped Australia chase the 359 runs target. He then after some time sustained a shoulder injury and missed out the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. He came back and had a good starting in the Marsh Cup as he scored 52 runs off 49 balls against Victoria.

Turner injury will prove expensive to Australia team as he will miss upcoming T20I matches against Sri Lanka and Pakistan scheduled between October and November. WACA sports science medicine manager Nick Jones announced that Ashton Turner would take at least a month to recover.

He played in IPL 2019 for Rajasthan Royals (RR). Turner’s injury will be a severe blow to his career and also for the Australia team. He once again has to prove himself after recovering from injury. The middle-order batsman has played 3 ODIs and 5 T20Is. He has scored 2105 runs in first-class cricket and scored 932 runs in List A matches.
