Ashton Agar to return to Australia

UPDATED 21 August, 2013 12:01AM AEST | by Cricket Australia

Cricket Australia (CA) advises that spinner Ashton Agar will return to Australia this evening. Agar has been feeling unwell for the past week and subsequently a decision has been made to allow him to return early to Australia.

Australian Cricket Team doctor Dr Peter Brukner said: “Ashton has had a mild viral illness for the past week and needs some time to rest and recuperate." 

"It has been a long tour and while he has handled the pressure extremely well, we thought it would be a good idea for him to get home as soon possible to have a short break before preparing for the domestic season.”
