In a blow to Australia ahead of the women’s Ashes, allrounder Sophie Molineux has been ruled out after suffering a stress fracture to her right foot while playing in the WBBL.

“Sophie sustained a stress fracture to her right foot during the last week of the WBBL. She is currently offloading in a moon boot and a return to play plan has been developed in conjunction with Cricket Victoria and Cricket Australia medical staff,” Australian Team Doctor Pip Inge said: “Inge confirmed Molineux’s absence from the Ashes that begins on January 27 next year, with the focus now on getting her back to full fitness by the time the 50-over World Cup comes along in March.

“Sophie’s focus now shifts to her rehabilitation plan which means she’ll be unavailable for any upcoming domestic matches as well as the Ashes in January. At this stage we are aiming to have Sophie available for the ICC Women’s World Cup in New Zealand in March.”

Molineux’s injury further dents Australia’s spin options after 22-year-old offspinner Georgia Wareham also suffered an ACL injury during the WBBL and is unlikely to recover on time for the Ashes.
