Parry & Leaney injured in cricket match

Two of Australia's top golfers - Craig Parry and Stephen Leaney - are in doubt for this week's Ericsson Masters at Huntingdale, in Melbourne, after suffering injuries in a social cricket match.

Parry, a three-time winner of the Ericsson Masters, is in grave doubt after straining a hamstring while chasing a ball in the match between a golfers XI and an MCC XI at the MCG yesterday.

He withdrew from the Masters Pro-Am today and has a leg heavily bandaged.

Leaney is nursing injured fingers on both hands, one bruised while batting and the other while wicketkeeping.

Leaney can still grip the club and says at this stage he plans to play.

Tournament organiser IMG is lamenting the match -- in which golfers Aaron Baddley and Stuart Appleby also played -- with organisers saying it won't be happening again.
