Melbourne, Feb 14 (IANS) Cricket Australia (CA) on Tuesday confirmed that Victorian fast bowler James Pattinson has been ruled out of the Prime Ministers XI match against Sri Lanka in Canberra on Wednesday.

“Pattinson flew with the team to Canberra, however, a left foot infection will prevent him from being fit to bowl. He will be replaced in the squad by emerging New South Wales bowler Harry Conway,” CA said in a statement.

Conway, a 24-year-old fast bowler, was 12th man for NSW Blues in their most recent Sheffield Shield match.
