Sophie Molineux ruled out of Women's Ashes

The spin-bowling allrounder suffered a stress fracture to her right foot in the WBBL

Australia’s spin-bowling allrounder Sophie Molineux has been ruled out of the upcoming multi-format Ashes series after suffering a stress fracture to her right foot. The 23-year-old suffered the injury in the recently concluded WBBL.

"Sophie sustained a stress fracture to her right foot during the last week of the WBBL. She is currently offloading in a moon boot and a return to play plan has been developed in conjunction with Cricket Victoria and Cricket Australia medical staff," Australian team doctor Pip Inge said.

"She is currently offloading in a moon boot and a return to play plan has been developed in conjunction with Cricket Victoria and Cricket Australia medical staff. Sophie's focus now shifts to her rehabilitation plan which means she'll be unavailable for any upcoming domestic matches as well as the Ashes in January.

"At this stage we are aiming to have Sophie available for the ICC Women’s World Cup in New Zealand in March."

Molineux's injury is a further blow to Australia's spin stocks after legspinner Georgia Wareham was earlier ruled out of the upcoming World Cup, Ashes and Commonwealth Games campaigns due to the ACL injury in her left knee.
