Melbourne: Australia fast bowler Nathan Bracken has been ruled out of the ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa due to a right knee injury.

Team officials on Thursday said medical staff had determined Bracken could not continue playing, and that he will consult a knee specialist when he returns to Sydney.

“The nature of Nathan’s right knee problem has meant that he has had some ongoing manageable pain, but this has now reached a point where he is unable to continue playing in the ICC Champions Trophy,” team physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said. A decision on a replacement player for Bracken will need to be confirmed by the ICC’s technical committee before being announced, Cricket Australia said.
