“The timeframe is still a little bit loose at the moment, But the good news is that he doesn’t require surgery as it sits at the moment. The follow-up scan confirmed the fracture was in a joint. There will be an extended period of time out and we’re just going to weigh whether that time falls potentially with an option to carry him through the front half of the World Cup,” McDonald said in a Press conference as reported by India Today.

Travis Head was hit in the left glove in the One Day match against South Africa in South Africa. The ball was bowled by Proteas pacer Gerald Coetzee in the seventh over of the match. Even after getting hit in the left glove during the fourth ODI match. He faced three more deliveries in the same match. As the fracture takes a lot of time to recover. It is most likely that the left-hander will miss at least the start of the World Cup in India. However, the Australian team has a three-match ODI series against India in India just before the start of the World Cup. The team will look for a replacement for Head in that series.
