Cricket news - Ferguson taken for scans after suspected calf strain

Ferguson picked up the injury during the second session and did not come out on the field for the final session.

New Zealand suffered an injury blow on Day 1 of the pink-ball Test against Australia in Perth as debutant Lockie Ferguson left the field due to what is suspected as a right calf strain.

The bowler picked up the injury during the second session and did not come out on the field for the final session. The Blackcaps later confirmed that he was taken for an MRI scan and will be reassessed in the morning.

Ferguson, playing his first Test for New Zealand, got an opportunity in the playing XI after Trent Boult failed to make sufficient recovery from a side strain.

Ferguson, who bowled 11 overs on Day 1, conceded 47 runs and bowled one maiden. That could have turned out to be a wicket maiden had it not been for a dropped chance by Tom Latham at second slip, which gave Steve Smith a reprieve.
