Ballance suffers finger injury but fit for WC
England batsman Gary Balance has sustained a small fracture to his finger, but will be fit for the upcoming World Cup, which starts in Australia and New Zealand on 14 February.
Balance injured his little finger on his right hand while doing fielding drills in a warm-up match on England's current tour of Australia, where they are taking part in an ODI tri-series with the hosts and India.
A brief England and Wales Cricket Board statement read: "Gary Ballance has a fractured right little finger, sustained during fielding practice in Canberra.
"Ballance will be available for the ICC Cricket World Cup and therefore we will not be calling another player into the squad."
It is not clear if the 25 year-old left-handed batsman will be fit enough to take part in any of the tri-series matches down under.
