It can be noted that Wood has a history of ankle problems which raised concerns prior to the mega ICC event. He was sent to the nearby hospital for scans.

An England and Wales Cricket Board spokesman said,

“Mark Wood is to have a precautionary scan. England’s medical team want to ensure there is nothing serious in the build-up to the start of the World Cup.”

The incident graved the English camp as it happened just after Eoin Morgan ruled out of Saturday’s clash at the Ageas Bowl with a fractured finger but was told that he should be ready to lead the side in the tournament opener against South Africa next Thursday.

England kick off their World Cup campaign against South Africa at The Oval on Thursday, May 30.
