"Ash sustained an intra-articular fracture that will require surgical repair. We expect that Ash will undergo surgery in the coming days, and as a result will be unavailable for the remainder of the BBL." <p></p> <p></p>Agar had yesterday been passed fit for the Scorchers' game against Hobart Hurricanes today. He has now been replaced by Will Bosisto. <p></p> <p></p>Australia have a limited-overs tour of India in February, followed by five ODIs versus Pakistan in the UAE. They get their World Cup defence underway on June 1 in England. Agar, 25, was part of Australia's Test and T20I squads that toured the UAE in October 2018, as well as the limited-overs squads for home series with South Africa and India.
