Three injury concerns for Australia ahead of Afghan clash

November 2, 2022 at 10:40 AM

Australia are sweating on the scan results for the three walking wounded from T20 World Cup win over Ireland, with the immediate playing futures of skipper Aaron Finch, allrounder Marcus Stoinis and power-hitter Tim David to be known.

All three spent stints off the field with hamstring soreness as the reigning champions closed out a 42-run win at the Gabba on Monday to keep alive their tournament finals aspirations, and underwent scans in Brisbane yesterday.

The results of those investigations, and the impact they hold for the host nation’s hopes of defending the T20 title they won in the UAE last year, are expected to be revealed as they gather for training in Adelaide tomorrow morning ahead of their final Super 12s match against Afghanistan on Friday.
