Simon Katich set to miss rest of Ashes Test series

Tenacious Australian opening batsman Simon Katich is expected to miss the remainder of the Ashes series.

Cricket Australia will make an announcement on Katich’s immediate future today but his Achilles tendon problems are believed to be serious.

It is a blow the home side does not need as it struggles gain a foothold to challenge England in a bid to regain the Ashes.

Katich has been Australia’s highest run scorer since returning to the Test side in 2008, scoring six centuries in his first 16 Tests as a born-again opener and averaging over 50 since assuming the top of order duties.

“Katto is obviously pretty sore by the way he was running in between wickets, I believe he’s had a scan done this afternoon,” said fellow veteran Mike Hussey yesterday.
