Injury Scare for Australian All-Rounder James Faulkner.

Monday, 02 February 2015 - 15:01

Australian cricketer James Faulkner left the field with 'side soreness' in the tri-series final against England at the WACA yesterday.

Halfway through his third over, the left-arm medium pacer started stretching his right side and after a brief chat with Captain George Bailey, left the field.

The injury will be a setback for Australia with their opening match of the World Cup just two weeks away.

The 24-year-old had earlier starred with the bat, scoring an unbeaten 50 from only 24 balls.
