Boult to fly home

New Zealand strike bowler Trent Boult will fly home following the MCG Test after suffering a fracture on his right hand.


Boult was hit on the hand whilst batting during the Kiwis first innings and after a medical consultation it revealed a fracture to the second-metacarpal.


A replacement player will be named in due course.


Australia will start the fourth day at the MCG 4-137 with a lead of 456-runs.
