Khawaja Ruled Out Of World Cup Ahead of Semi-Finals

Khawaja is ruled out of World Cup semi-finals because of injury

Australia head coach Justin Langer said left-handed batsman Usman Khawaja has been ruled out of the remaining ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 matches because of injury. Khawaja suffered a left hamstring injury during their last league-stage match against South Africa on July 6. The Proteas won against Australia by 10 runs.

“It’s such a pity for Khawaja, for someone who’s been so integral to how we’ve been playing,” said Langer in an interview at Cricket Australia on Sunday. “Like Shaun (Marsh), I feel that sad for him that he’s going to miss the World Cup semi-final.”

“Matthew Wade is coming up, he’s in great form, he’s had a great 12 or 18 months back home but he also just scored two hundreds (for Australia A) so he’s in great nick,” continued Langer. “Mitch Marsh is going to come on standby for Marcus Stoinis just to see how he comes up. If they have to come in they’ll be ready to step up.”

Australia will play against England on Thursday at Edgbaston Cricket Ground. Australia currently have +235 odds to win the entire tournament.
