Quick bowler Andrew Tye has been dominated out of the T20I collection in opposition to Sri Lanka, and will probably miss the collection in opposition to Pakistan as effectively on account of an elbow harm. New South Wales seamer Sean Abbott has been named as his alternative.
“(He did it) throwing, I think it was one of the first drills he did. He was a bit off balance and felt a bit of a pop in there,” skipper Aaron Finch stated of how Tye sustained the harm.
Abbott joins a potent tempo assault which incorporates the likes of Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Billy Stanlake and Kane Richardson.
The Australian captain, who himself was battling a aspect pressure, has been declared match to play in the opening sport.
“(I’m) all good, ready to go. I felt really good batting in particular,” Finch confirmed.
“I was a bit worried about throwing yesterday, it wasn’t the most comfortable the last couple of days in Perth. Getting here and batting yesterday, throwing a fair bit gave me some confidence,” stated Finch.
“I’d say I’m 99 percent chance of playing tomorrow. Earlier in the week I was (in doubt). It didn’t progress all that quickly, but the last three days I got full movement and full training today.”
The primary T20I of the three-match collection will likely be performed on Sunday (October 27) in Adelaide.
