The fast bowler could miss the upcoming home series against Pakistan that will start on October 31
Australian fast bowler Andrew Tye was dropped from the upcoming T20I series against Sri Lanka due to an elbow injury he got during the team’s training session. He will likely miss the home series against Pakistan that will start this week.
Skipper Aaron Finch described how Tye sustained the injury. According to him, Tye was throwing and he was a bit off-balance. Tye felt a ‘pop’ which is suspected as ligament damage. Following his injury, Sean Abbott will replace him in the team.
Meanwhile, Finch is fully fit to play after his recovery from the injury that made him unavailable in the recent matches in Perth.
‘I was a bit worried about throwing yesterday, it wasn't the most comfortable the last couple of days in Perth. Getting here and batting yesterday, throwing a fair bit gave me some confidence. I'd say I'm 99 per cent chance of playing tomorrow. Earlier in the week, I was (in doubt). It didn't progress all that quickly, but the last three days I got full movement and full training today’, Finch said.
The home series against Pakistan will begin on October 31. It is comprised of three T20Is and two Tests. The latter will count for the ICC World Test Championship.
