England Call Up Reece Topley for Injured Tymal Mills

England Call Up Reece Topley for Injured Tymal Mills

Tymal Mills, who is often considered to be a T20 specialist for England, was ruled out of the tournament as he faced a strain in his right thigh in England’s group stage match against Sri Lanka. After bowling 1.3 overs during the match, he left the pitch with pain in his thigh that was confirmed as a strain injury by scans later that day. Considering the degree of strain and the chances of recovery, the ECB released a statement on 3 November confirming the injury and the pacer’s exclusion from the remainder of the World Cup.

This isn’t the first time that England has missed out on the services of Tymal Mills during ICC tournaments. Mills has been injury-prone since the day he entered the international cricketing arena so much so that his injury issues have cost him his place in England’s squad from 2018. Despite these injury concerns, Tymal Mills is a premium T20 bowler and brings in a lot of variations to the bowling lineup based on which he was picked for the 2021 ICC T20 World Cup. In the 4 matches that he was part of in this world cup, he managed to take 4 wickets before being ruled out because of a thigh strain.

Reece Topley, who replaces him in the squad, has been a part of 13 ODIs and 6 T20Is for England in which the paceman has claimed 20 and 5 wickets respectively. Only time will tell whether Topley will be as effective as Mills in bringing the variation to England’s bowling lineup in the team’s quest to win the T20 World Cup.
