AUCKLAND: New Zealand all-rounder Jacob Oram has been cleared to travel to the World Cup, which is due to start on February 19, after sustaining an injury before the team’s One-Day International against Pakistan on Saturday.
Oram had been expected to play at Eden Park but suffered ankle and foot pain while bowling before the game. He underwent scans and an examination and was given the all-clear. Oram has had a terrible run of injuries in the past few years and was sent home from the team’s tour of Sri Lanka last August with a recurrence of a knee tendon injury that required surgery.
