“He will soon return to Australia to start his rehabilitation programme and we all wish him the very best,” added Farbrace.
Agar, who scalped three wickets in four games and scored 95 runs, with a highest score of 41 not out for Birmingham Bears, will now head back to Australia.
The Australian domestic seasons kicks off on September 21 and Western Australia, for whom Agar plays, will be hosting Victoria at the WACA in the Marsh One-Day Cup. It means the tweaker will now have only six to recover from the injury.
In Agar’s absence, Birmingham Bears suffered a defeat against Leicestershire Foxes as South African allrounder Colin Ackermann returned with a record-braking bowling figures in T20 cricket, 7/18 helped his side register a 55-run win.
Ackermann surpassed the previous T20 best figures of 6/5, taken by Arul Suppiah for Somerset versus Glamorgan in 2011, to etch his name in the record books. Batting first, Foxes scored 190 and then bundled out Bears for 134.
