Cricket Australia has confirmed that Victoria all-rounder Sophie Molineux has been ruled out of the upcoming Rose Bowl One-Day International series against New Zealand due to a shoulder injury sustained whilst training with Victoria.

Molineux will be replaced in the squad by Queensland all-rounder, Delissa Kimmince.

Australian Team Physiotherapist, Kate Mahony said, “Sophie suffered a right shoulder subluxation whilst diving during a fielding drill at training earlier in the week. A scan has revealed significant soft-tissue injury and as a result, she is unavailable for the upcoming series against New Zealand.”

“She will be reviewed over the coming days to determine rehabilitation and return to play timeframe.”
