Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc was hospitalised yesterday after sustaining an injury on his leg during a practice session in Sydney.

The paceman, who was Player of the Series of the 2015 World Cup in Australia, sustained a cut while fielding in a training drill at the Hurstville Oval in the south of the metropolis when he dived to field a ball.

The 26-year-old jumped and landed awkwardly on training equipment on his left knee and required immediate medical attention.

Medical staff, who deemed the injury as serious, called for an ambulance for one of the fastest bowlers in world cricket.
