Eng­land's Jake Ball in­jures an­kle in warm-up match

Daily Messenger - - Sportlight -

LON­DON: Pace bowler Jake Ball added to Eng­land's in­jury prob­lems be­fore the first Ashes Test against Aus­tralia when he sprained an an­kle in a warm-up game.

Bowl­ing his fourth over on the sec­ond day against a Cricket Aus­tralia XI, Ball col­lapsed in his de­liv­ery stride and limped off the field in Ade­laide. Eng­land said the 26-yearold would be as­sessed overnight.

Fast bowler Steven Finn this week left the tour with a knee in­jury and was re­placed by Tom Cur­ran. All- rounder Moeen Ali is miss­ing the four- day match at the Ade­laide Oval with a side in­jury.

It is the sec­ond of Eng­land's three tour games be­fore the first Test in Bris­bane starts on 23 Novem­ber. The Cricket Aus­tralia XI slipped to 57-5 in re­ply to Eng­land's 293.
