Ahead of Test against Windies, Kiwi all rounder Oram suffers a leg injuryDecember 10th, 2008 - 5:57 pm ICT by ANI
Wellington, Dec.10 (ANI): New Zealand all rounder Jacob Oram has suffered a leg injury but is still expected to take his place in the Black Caps line-up for the first cricket test against the West Indies starting here tomorrow.
Oram, on the comeback trail after missing the 0-2 series loss in Australia with a back injury, told medical staff he had a tight left calf muscle although he was able to take a full part in training.
Auckland’’s Kyle Mills has been brought in as a precaution and, if Oram is clear, will be released before plays starts at 12 p.m.
The New Zealand Press Association quoted Black Caps media manager John Durning as saying that Oram had only suffered a “slight” strain left calf and was 95 per cent certain to take the field tomorrow.
The injury was a result of a heavy workload, rather than any particular training mishap, he said.(ANI)
