Scott Boland sent for scans after suffering nasty fall on Day 3

The right-armer did not bowl in the final session of the day

Australia’s Scott Boland, who has had a dream start to his Test career, was sent for scans on Day 3 after suffering a nasty fall on the stroke of Tea, where he landed on his arm on follow through. Boland delivered the last ball of the second session to Ben Stokes, but after delivering it he landed awkwardly on his follow-through after losing balance. As a precautionary measure, he was taken for scans.

“Cricket Australia has confirmed the second-gamer, who has followed up his incredible MCG haul of 6-7 by taking 2-0 from his first five overs at the SCG, has gone for scans despite starting the third session on the field,” CA said in a statement.

It was a bittersweet day for Boland, who continued the dream start to his career by taking two wickets in the first session of the day. He first cleaned up opener Zak Crawley through the gate, via a sensational nip-backer, and then claimed the huge wicket of England skipper Joe Root. But Boland’s day endured a terrible end as he suffered a nasty fall on the stroke of tea.
