New Zealand Pacer Lockie Ferguson Out For Four-Six Weeks Due To Stress Fracture
New Zealand Cricket (NZC) on Wednesday confirmed that pacer Lockie Ferguson has been diagnosed with a partial stress fracture to his lumbar spine and will require four to six weeks of rest before returning to training. The injury to the left side of his back surfaced after the recent T20I series against the West Indies and subsequent scans and imaging later confirmed the partial fracture. Ferguson will not be needing surgery, but instead, he will require a period of rest and rehabilitation before considering any return to play later this summer.
