James Faulkner out of the BBL with hamstring injury


Faulkner re-aggravated the hamstring injury that he suffered on December 27 and won’t play again in the BBL

Hobart Hurricanes seamer James Faulkner has been ruled out of the remainder of the BBL after re-injuring his hamstring at training on Sunday.

Faulkner had not played since he limped off the Gabba four balls into his second over in the Hurricanes’ loss to the Brisbane Heat on December 27.

He was on track to return to the Hurricanes side but re-aggravated his hamstring at training ahead of the clash with Sydney Thunder on Monday in Canberra.

Faulkner has left the BBL hub and travelled home to Hobart to have scans and begin treatment.

The Hurricanes have recalled Surrey batting allrounder Will Jacks into their squad after Colin Ingram departed to the Abu Dhabi T10 League. Jacks hasn’t played for the Hurricanes since December 19.

The Hurricanes currently sit seventh but only four points separate the teams between there and second position.
