Broken Finger Sidelines Ashton Turner for Four to Six Weeks
Australia cricketer Ashton Turner will be out of action for at least four to six weeks after sustaining a fracture on his index finger while training for the Marsh Cup. As a result, the all-rounder will miss the upcoming T20I matches against Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
Turner had a good start to the Marsh Cup scoring a half-century on his return from a shoulder injury guiding Western Australia to a comfortable win against Victoria. Ashton Turner looked in superb touch and would have wanted to put some more runs on the board ahead of Australia’s long home season.
As he looked to gear up for Australia’s limited-overs series, Turner sustained an untimely injury. WACA sports science medicine manager Nick Jones revealed the news and said it will approximately take him a month to return to training.Ashton Turner. (Credits: Getty)

“Ashton sustained a fracture to his right index finger at training this week. After reviewing the injury with specialists, he will require a period of approximately four-six weeks before being able to return to play,” Jones said.
Ashton Turner’s injury will be a massive blow to the Australian side considering the recent impact he had against India earlier this year. He played a swashbuckling hand in Mohali where a 43-ball 84 runs knock helped the Aussies down India’s 358 for nine.Ashton Turner. Credit: Twitter
Turner will once again have to prove his credibility in the domestic tournament to return to the national side after he regains full fitness. Australia have back to back series lined up and they will want Ashton Turner to recover soon. Turner has played three ODIs and five T20Is for his country.
