Ashton Agar suffers shoulder injury
Left-arm orthodox spinner Ashton Agar has suffered a shoulder injury during pre-season training and will miss out on the start of the Quadrangular A series this winter for Australia A.
It is also currently not certain if Agar will be able to take part in the opening games of the upcoming edition of the Matador BBQ’s One-Day Cup.
Agar sustained the injury while training with Western Australia and he underwent scans on Monday afternoon, which showed some damage in his right shoulder which was operated upon last year.
Alex Kountouris, Cricket Australia’s sports science and sports medicine manager said that Agar will see a specialist in order to determine if he needs a surgery to address his injury.
“He (Agar) is due to see a specialist next week to determine if he will require surgery and when he is likely to return to training and playing.
“He will definitely miss the start of the quadrangular A series, but whether he takes any part in it and whether he will be fit for the Matador BBQs One-Day Cup will be determined in due course.”
Agar was a part of Australia’s squad for the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 where he played a solitary game against New Zealand in Dharamsala.
