Steve Smith to return home with shoulder injury

07-10-2017

Australia cricket captain Steve Smith will return home from the team’s tour of India with a right shoulder injury, Cricket Australia said on Saturday.

The Australians lost their five-match one-day series against India 4-1 and begin a three-match Twenty20 series later Saturday.

Marcus Stoinis will replace Smith in the squad and vice-captain David Warner will stand in as captain in Smith’s absence.

Australian team doctor Richard Saw said- “Smith landed awkwardly on his right shoulder while diving in the field during the fifth ODI against India last Sunday. Following the match he complained of shoulder soreness.

“Subsequently he has had an MRI scan which has excluded serious injury, but we believe the best course of action is for him to not continue to aggravate his shoulder.”
