Topley ruled out of final ODI
After more than four long years, English left-arm pacer Reece Topley has got a chance in the national team.
But less than two days later, Topley faced an unfortunate injury. The English fast bowler was ruled out after playing a match due to a left groin injury.
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.
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.
