Melbourne, Mar 3 : Australian all-rounder Ellyse Perry has been ruled out of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2020, after sustaining a hamstring injury. On Monday, Perry injured her right hamstring while attempting a run out during Australia's final group stage match against New Zealand and immediately left the field.
"Ellyse sustained a high-grade right hamstring injury that is expected to keep her out of the game for a significant period of time. We are currently exploring management options and will continue to support Ellyse through her recovery, " said team doctor Pip Inge. Australia have chosen not to name a replacement for her. She will remain a part of the 15- member squad, with coach Matthew Mott confident that they have the depth to replace her in the XI.
"Ellyse is a key member of our squad and has been for a long period of time and on a personal level we're disappointed that she won't have the opportunity to finish the tournament," head coach Matthew Mott said. "She gives her absolute all every time she takes to the field for her country and that was evident again against New Zealand in the selfless manner, in which she threw herself into her batting, bowling and fielding performances.(UNI)
