Australia’s Boland replaces injured Hastings in Caribbean tri-series

Melbourne: Australia’s emerging fast bowler Scott Boland has replaced fellow injured all-rounder John Hastings in the one-day squad for the upcoming West Indies tri-series, which also features South Africa.

Hastings was ruled out of the series with an ankle injury sustained in the Indian Premier League earlier this month.

Reflecting on the injury, Cricket Australia’s sports medicine manager Alex Kountouris said that Hastings underwent arthroscopic surgery and that he now requires a period of rest to resolve the bone stress and recover from surgery before he will resume bowling, reported.

Boland, who made his debut last summer against India in Perth, has played six one-day internationals till now. (ANI)
