Scans have cleared Melbourne Stars wicketkeeper Sam Harper of an acute fracture or soft tissue injury, after he was injured whilst batting in the MCG nets last night.

Harper suffered a laceration on his chin and neck and was immediately attended to by the Melbourne Stars medical team after being struck whilst attempting to ramp a ball.

An ambulance was immediately called and Harper was taken to hospital where he stayed overnight.

Harper will be monitored by doctors over the coming days.

The Stars have subsequently signed Victorian wicketkeeper Peter Handscomb, who replaces Harper in the squad ahead of the Sixers clash this evening.

Handscomb returns to the Stars having played 51 games for the club between BBL|01 and BBL|09.
