Jess Cameron To Miss Remaining Games Against Pakistan
Australia's Jess Cameron has been ruled out of the remaining five matches against Pakistan Women after fracturing her left hand during the third One-Day International.
Cameron, whose half-century helped Australia win the opening game as they progressed to a 3-0 series lead, damaged the hand in the field during her team's eight-wicket win in the third game.
Scans revealed a fracture to the fifth metacarpal on her left hand and she will miss the fourth and final One-Day International and the four Twenty20 Internationals that follow.
With the fourth ODI taking place tomorrow (28th August), no replacement player has been named but Nicole Bolton will remain with the squad for the Twenty20 series as cover.
"Jess injured her left hand while fielding against Pakistan yesterday and was subsequently taken for an x-ray which revealed a fracture," physiotherapist Kate Watson said.
"Her progress will be monitored and it is expected that she will recommence skills training in approximately four weeks."
Cameron added: "It’s disappointing that I won’t be able to see the series through.
"I felt like I was in good touch with the bat and any opportunity to represent my country is an honour.
"I wish the team the best of luck for the remaining matches and I look forward to our next international series against the West Indies in November."
Cameron, who has played three Tests, 47 ODIs and 55 Twenty20 Internationals for Australia, will now return home to recuperate in Melbourne.
