Tanveer Sangha of New South Wales has been ruled out of the first half of the domestic season. The reason is stated to be a lower back stress injury.

Sangha, who has played for Australia’s white-ball squads, hopes to return to action during the BBL with the Sydney Thunder.

He was a member of Australia A squad that toured Sri Lanka earlier this year. He took seven wickets in two four-day matches and had a brief stay with Birmingham Phoenix in the Hundred. He also travelled to India to participate at the MRF Academy in Chennai.

Last season, Sangha made his first-class debut and took 24 wickets in eight matches. With 37 wickets at 18.43 and an economy rate of 7.46, he put up a very strong T20 record.

His injury means he won’t be able to join Nathan Lyon this season, with the Sheffield Shield taking place during the Test team’s trip to India in February and March.

Lyon has been named to New South Wales’ Marsh Cup side to face Victoria on Friday. He isn’t part of Australia’s T20I squad hence he will have plenty of Shield play before the first home Test against the West Indies in late November.

Youngsters Ollie Davies (hip) and Hayden Kerr (finger) are also on the injury list for New South Wales. Davies, like Sangha, is aiming to return during the BBL.
