Agar broke the digit as Steven Smith's team were unable to defend 293 against India's rampant batsmen. He spent time off the field and, though he returned to bowl, he is now out of the tour.
"Ashton injured his right little finger whilst fielding in the match last night," the team doctor Richard Saw said. "Following the conclusion of the match he went for x-rays which have confirmed a fracture of the finger. He will return home to Australia and consult a specialist with a possibility of surgery."
After playing in two Tests in Bangladesh, Agar was not initially part of the ODI team but was included after Adam Zampa was harshly dealt with by India's middle order in the first ODI in Chennai. Smith was critical of Zampa bowling too full in the match and subsequently preferred Agar. Zampa, who possesses a handsome IPL record, can now expect a recall for the remainder of the series.
