MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Moises Henriques will replace injured all-rounder Shane Watson in the Australia squad for Friday’s tri-series match against England, Cricket Australia has confirmed.
Injury-prone Watson reported tightness in his right hamstring during training on Thursday and was stood down just a few weeks ahead of next month’s World Cup.
Henriques, 27, will join an Australia team seeking their third successive victory in the tournament in the Hobart one-dayer. England have a win and a loss while India, the third team in the tournament, have lost both their encounters.
