John Hastings ruled out of West Indies Tour

Australian fast bowler John Hastings has been ruled out of the upcoming ODI tri-series in West Indies with an ankle injury and will be replaced by Scott Boland.

Hastings hurt his ankle playing for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) and immediately left for Australia for scans, which revealed he needed surgery to remove bone spurs.

Cricket Australia medical official Alex Kountouris said, 


John had this surgery over the weekend and now requires a period of rest to resolve the bone stress and recover from surgery before he will resume bowling.




Australia begin the tri-series in Guyana on June 6 against South Africa before facing West Indies four days later at the same venue. Teams will play three matches against each opponent.
