Hogg out of Aussie's semi-final lineup
Australian team physio Errol Alcott said Brad Hogg would be placed on a rehabilitation programme due to a torn left hamstring tendon.
Cricket Australia said on Tuesday that leg-spin bowler Brad Hogg has been ruled out of the ICC Champions Trophy semifinal due to a torn left hamstring tendon.
Hogg, who will return to Australia for treatment, sustained the injury while bowling during a net session at Edgbaston in England on Sunday and was officially released from the tournament following a review by a representative of the ICC's medical panel.
Australia plays England in the semifinal on Tuesday at Edgbaston.
Australian team physiotherapist Errol Alcott said Hogg would be placed on a three- to five-week rehabilitation programme.
"I'm pretty flat at the moment," said Hogg.
"I knew that the injury was fairly serious as soon as it occurred but being an optimist, thought I still might be able to play with it. That's obviously not the case, so all I can do now is get back home and try and be as fit as possible for the start of the state season.
