A knee strain has ruled Tayla Vlaeminck out of the Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) matches. This comes as a significant injury scare ahead of the T20 World Cup next year.
The Aussie speedster has a torrid history of knee injury and suffered an ACL strain to her left knee while training before Christmas. It is expected that she will be sidelined for two to three weeks.
While Australia’s next assignment is the T20I tri-series involving England and India late January, Victoria’s opening WNCL games on January 7 and 9.
“Tayla sustained a mild ACL strain while bowling at training prior to Christmas,” a CV spokesperson told cricket.com.au. “Following advice from team medical staff, Tayla is expected to miss two to three weeks and will be unavailable for the upcoming WNCL fixtures for Victoria.”
Vlaeminck is one of the fastest bowlers in the circuit. She has been a regular in the Australian team ever since she made her debut in 2018. Given the X-factor her pace bowling brings, Australia would surely be wanting her to be fit soon.
