Australia’s upcoming schedule includes 3 T20Is, 1 Test and 3 ODIs against England from January 20. Beth Mooney, who is a talented Australian batter, is likely to miss these upcoming games due to her fractured jaw after getting hit with a short ball during training prep for the Ashes. Although it seems she might be able to recover from her fracture in time to play in the ODI WC. She is a valuable player for her squad who contributed bountifully in all of the 3 formats, and her absence will greatly put a dent in Australia’s winning chances against England.

According to ESPNcricinfo, Head Coach Matthew Mott has given important updates regarding her recovery. “Unfortunately, I had a significant role. Throwing balls to Beth, she was batting extremely well, and as may happen, a stray ball popped up and placed her in a difficult situation. She attempted to get out of the path and was hit on the side of her chin. The good news is that our physicians are fairly certain that, given the current state of jaw surgery, the recovery period will be a little quicker. We’re looking for her to play, and Beth is eager to do so, but we’ll have to be sensible and follow the doctors’ advice. She’s a character with a lot of grit. The ball struck her hard, and her response was stoic. ”
