Australia have suffered an injury scare ahead of the T20 World Cup, with back-up keeper Josh Inglis taken to hospital after he was injured in a bizarre incident while playing golf.

The Australian side were given Wednesday morning off to relax ahead of the crucial training session on Thursday. As a result, Inglis and other players decided to play the game of golf at the New South Wales Golf Club.

Inglis suffered the injury when his club snapped while trying to hit the ball down the fairway. The 27-year-old cut his hand which drew a lot of blood and he looked in discomfort.

The severity of the injury is still unclear. As per the Australian team's spokesperson, the extend of the injury will be assessed and accordingly the management will take the final call. 

It is to be noted that Matthew Wade is Australia's first choice keeper-batter and will don the gloves against New Zealand in their World Cup opener, but the latest injury will surely be a setback for the defending champions.
