London:

Luke Wright became the latest England cricketer to sustain an unusual injury after a ball from a bowling machine struck his toe and left him doubtful for Tuesday's one-dayer against Australia.

Wright was batting in the indoor nets at the National Cricket Performance Centre in Loughborough, central England, when he was hit on the toe by a ball from the machine and had to have stitches inserted into the injury.

The Sussex all-rounder will now be assessed ahead of Tuesday's day-nighter at Trent Bridge in Nottingham where England, already 4-0 down with three to play, will try to win their first match of this one-day international series.

Wright is not the only England player to have sustained a bizarre injury in recent weeks.

Joe Denly was ruled out of the start of the series after a football warm-up clash with fellow England batsman Owais Shah saw him injure his left knee.
