England allrounder Dimitri Mascarenhas, is in major doubt for the Big Bash League after fracturing his jaw. Mascarenhas, who is also the assistant coach of the Hobart Hurricanes, was hit while batting in a practice match on Thursday and underwent surgery on his jaw on Friday morning.

Mascarenhas will be examined next week by his surgeon, who will determine the recovery period for the allrounder.

Mascarenhas had switched to the Hurricanes side this season after playing the second edition for Melbourne Stars, and is one of the major signings for the Hurricanes along with the Pakistan batsman, Shoaib Malik. In 2012, he had led Hampshire to a title win in the Friends Life t20 tournament, but retired from county cricket earlier this year. He has played 20 ODIs for England scoring 245 runs and taking 13 wickets. In T20s, he has played 14 games for England, scoring 123 runs and taking 12 wickets.

The Hurricanes were semi-finalists in the opening season of the Big Bash League but finished in the bottom half of the table in 2012.
