There is still no word on how serious the injury is

Just after spending all summer on the sidelines recovering from a back injury, Australia pace bowler Jackson Bird may have reaggravated it during the Melbourne Stars’ Big Bash League (BBL) clash against the Hobart Hurricanes.

Bird is currently undergoing treatment and there is still no word on how serious the injury is or whether he will be able to travel with the national team for their upcoming tour of South Africa.

“Jackson Bird jarred his back whilst diving in the field for the Melbourne Stars on Tuesday night which has resulted in some back soreness,” Australia team physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said. “As such, he has been withdrawn from the second XI fixture whilst he receives treatment ahead of his departure for South Africa.”
