“James experienced lower back pain during the second Test against New Zealand in Christchurch and was given some time to rest,” Australia physiotherapist David Beakey said on Tuesday (May 24). “Unfortunately his back pain continued during this time and after further investigation it confirmed that he has had a recurrence of a back stress fracture. James will continue to spend the winter recovering from this injury, at which point we hope to have a clearer view of timelines for his return to play.”
The First Test between Australia vs Sri Lanka starts on July 26, 2016 at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium.
