Sadly, she had some hamstring awareness and has a low strain, so she won’t be available for the rest of this series. She will stay with the team to continue her rehab and training in the hope of being available at some point. point during the WBBL. So she won’t play a role in this series. It’s the same hamstring but a different muscle in the hamstring. It’s on the small side, so hopefully it won’t slow down too much, “ESPNCricinfo quoted Lanning as too say.
“It was just during a training run that she did, she progressed her plan, such a shame it happened, but it’s on the small end and she’s doing everything she can to make herself available. I think she is do everything she can to be available as soon as possible, it’s a very complex injury and hard to get the timing when certain things are going to happen. Get it right and take your time before we put her on the pitch. Hopefully it’s sooner rather than later, but we’ll just have to see how it turns out, “she added.
