18 January 2019

Will Bosisto

The Perth Scorchers have made a late change to their 13-player squad ahead of today’s KFC Big Bash League home game against the Hobart Hurricanes at Optus Stadium.

Ashton Agar has been ruled out to tonight’s clash due to injury and the BBL Technical Committee has approved Will Bosisto to replace him in the squad.

Scorchers Sports Science Sports Medicine Manager Nick Jones said;

“Ash Agar unfortunately suffered a fracture dislocation to his right index finger whilst fielding at training yesterday.

“Ash sustained an intra-articular fracture that will require surgical repair. We expect that Ash will undergo surgery in the coming days, and as a result will be unavailable for the remainder of the BBL.”
