Injury-plagued Turner eyes bowling chance against Bangladesh

Australian all-rounder Ashton Turner said Sunday he hoped to shine in the upcoming Twenty20 series against Bangladesh, after an injury-plagued career that has seen him play just over a dozen matches in the format in five years.
The right-arm off-spinner and explosive middle-order batsman has struggled with multiple shoulder injuries and has taken part in just 13 T20Is since debuting in 2017.
His one-day international career has been limited to nine matches.
However, he bowled 14 overs in the last two matches against the West Indies in the recent ODI series, claiming two wickets.
"Bowling is something I've always loved and unfortunately due to my shoulder injuries I haven't been able to contribute much in games," Turner told reporters in a virtual press conference.
"It's been almost two years since my last operation. So I feel as good about my bowling as I have in a long time.    -AFP
