Volts paceman ruled out of Champions League
Otago Volts bowler Jacob Duffy has been ruled out of the Champions League Twenty20 cricket tournament in India.
The Southland teenager was expected to play an important role for the Volts in the tournament after being the leading wicket-taker in New Zealand domestic competition.
However, Duffy has torn his hamstring and will not line up for the Volts' opening game against the Pakistani side, the Faisalabad Wolves, tonight or in any other game in the tournament.
The 19-year-old will instead return home to get for the domestic season.
Today's Volts-Wolves game will be screened live on Sky Sport 3 at 10.20pm.
