The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said on Monday that Topley would miss the last match of the ODI series against Ireland. The match will be played on Tuesday in Southampton.

Topley returned to the XI with the second ODI of the current series after 2016. He bowled 9 overs and took one wicket for 31 runs.

Earlier, the entire series ended for English top-order batsman Joe Denly with a back injury.

England have already won the series by 2-0. Ireland will fight in the third ODI to avoid whitewash. England won the first ODI by 6 wickets and second ODI by 4 wickets.

It’s the first limited-over series after the coronavirus outbreak which stopped cricket for about four months from March to July. Cricket had been back on the field with England and West Indies three-match Test series in July.
