Melbourne, Oct 11 (IANS): Australia's bowling spearhead Mitchell Johnson injured his left ankle on the opening day of Western Australia's Sheffield Shield clash with Tasmania at the WACA Ground Tuesday.

Johnson is due to fly out to South Africa Friday ahead of Australia's Test and one-day tour against the Proteas.
