Australia batsman Usman Khawaja's hamstring strain will rule him out for the rest of the 2019 World Cup, head coach Justin Langer has confirmed.
Khawaja was troubled by a problem to his left hamstring which led to him retiring hurt in the 10-run defeat to South Africa on Saturday, although the batsman did take to the field again in the closing stages at Old Trafford.
Australia have now confirmed the injury will end his involvement in the tournament, with Matthew Wade set to be parachuted in as the left-hander's replacement ahead of Thursday's (Jul 11) semi-final against England.
Wade, who has already joined up with the squad, scored List A hundreds against Derbyshire and Northamptonshire in June while batting for Australia A on their tour of England.
