Martyn out of domestic clash

Key Australian midde-order batsmen Damien Martyn has been ruled out of Western Australia’s limited-overs game against Queensland with an elbow injury.

The match was to be Martyn’s final game before the first Test, but it was decided by WACA officials that he shouldn’t play because of an existing tendonitis condition in his elbow.

The move was purely precautionary and doesn?t place him in doubt for the first Ashes test.

Martyn is in an excellent run of form currently after scoring 241 runs in five matches at an average of 80.33 during the recent Champions Trophy.
