MEDICAL scans have cleared new Australian allrounder Moises Henriques of a broken finger after he was hit on the hand during a net session in Brisbane this morning.
It’s understood the injury is not too serious and Australia will now wait until tomorrow morning to make a call on whether the 25-year-old plays against Sri Lanka in Brisbane tomorrow night.
Either paceman Ben Cutting or spinning allrounder Glenn Maxwell would play if Henriques is not fit.
It could potentially mean Cutting would miss Brisbane Heat’s Big Bash League final against Perth Scorchers at the WACA on Saturday night.
“He got hit yesterday when bowling. I actually straight drove one back and he got his finger on it so it was a little bit sore but it was fine. And as you’ve seen, batting in the nets today, he got hit again,” Australian captain Michael Clarke said earlier today.
Clarke, returning from a two-match rest to improve a strained hamstring, will bat at No.3, with David Warner and Phillip Hughes to open.
