T20 World Cup: England's Tymal Mills out of tournament with thigh injury

Last update on. From the section Cricket
England's leading wicket-taker is Tymal Mills, who also happens to be Adil Rashid.

England pace bowler Tymal Miller has been ruled out for the rest of the T20 World Cup due to a thigh strain.

After injuring his right quadriceps while bowling, the left-armer, aged 29, was forced to leave the field during Monday's Super 12 victory over Sri Lanka.

Mills played in all four England matches and took seven wickets, an average of 15.42 and an economy of 8.00.

Reece Topley (left-arm fast bowler) replaces him. Topley is one of three England reserves for the United Arab Emirates.

After winning their first four games, England is now almost certain to reach the semi-finals.

South Africa will be their last Group 1 match at Sharjah on Saturday.

Mills was recalled to England's World Cup squad after a four year absence. He has suffered from injuries all his career.

In 2015, he was diagnosed with congenital back conditions. He also suffered another stress fracture in 2015.

Mark Wood, a fellow England pace bowler, has not yet participated in the World Cup. Before England's tournament opener against West Indies, he had an injection to his ankle.

Sam Curran, left-arm seamer, withdrew due to a back injury just before the tournament began and was replaced by Tom.
