James Hopes Ruled out for the Rest of the ODI Series against India

Australia’s injury list seems to be getting larger day by day. Earlier, Tim Paine and Brett Lee fell in injury, and now, all rounder James Hopes has been ruled out of the remainder of the seven-match ODI series against India. The all rounder has picked up a hamstring injury recently and would have to return home.

Cricket Australia (CA) has called up Victoria pacer Clint McKay as Hopes’ replacement and would fly to India to join the Aussie squad. Well, Australia may not feel the absence of the all rounder as Moises Henriques will stay with the team for the rest of the series. India is currently leading in the series 2-1 as India won the third ODI by 6 wickets on Saturday. The fourth ODI of the series will take place on 2 November at Mohali.
