Perth Scorchers captain Ashton Turner will miss the remainder of the KFC BBL|13 season following surgery this morning to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee.
Turner, who has managed the injury throughout the 2023-24 domestic season, experienced pain while bowling during the Scorchers’ win against Hobart Hurricanes at Optus Stadium on Wednesday.
The incident saw him leave the field and take no further part in the match, with subsequent scans revealing surgery was required.
An exact timeframe for Turner’s return will be determined in due course.
The Club is currently working through the process of appointing a stand-in captain, who will be announced before Perth’s Boxing Day match against Melbourne Renegades at Optus Stadium.
