Agar to return to Australia following ankle injury

Birmingham Bears have confirmed that spinner Ashton Agar has been ruled out of the 2019 Vitality Blast campaign after suffering a small fracture and ligament damage to his right ankle.

Agar suffered the injury in warm-ups ahead of the tied Blast fixture with Yorkshire Vikings at Emerald Headingley last Sunday.

Paul Farbrace, Sport Director of Warwickshire CCC, said: “We’re obviously very disappointed to lose Ash after he made such a great impression on and off the field.

“He will soon return to Australia to start his rehabilitation programme and we all wish him the very best.”
