There was blood everywhere’: Finch describes severity of Josh Inglis’s freak injury on golf course – Sydney News

Reserve wicketkeeper Inglis suffered a deep cut on his right hand after his golf club broke as soon as it hit the ball. The 27-year-old joins charismatic England batter Jonny Bairstow, who suffered a freak leg injury on the golf course, which has ruled him ruled him out for the rest of the year.

It was no surprise that the question on whether golf should be banned before a major tournament popped up during Australia skipper Aaron Finch’s pre-match press conference on Friday.

The 35-year-old top-order batter said he himself was one of the players in Josh Inglis’s group when his golf club broke on impact.

“That was a freak accident. I was playing in Josh’s (Inglis) group, and I feel so bad for him because we all — Maxy (Glenn Maxwell) had played his shot, and then Josh hit. We didn’t realise the club broke. We just thought he hit it poorly, and we looked down, and there was blood everywhere.

“So that was a freak accident. His clubs must have gotten damaged while travelling or something like that. But it was pretty distressing for a little bit, especially with all the unknowns. When we got the news there was no tendon damage or anything; that was a big relief. Disappointed he missed out on another opportunity to be part of the squad for the World Cup,” said Finch.
