Alom player Sam Curran will miss the upcoming Twenty20 World Cup with a back injury, the English and Welsh Cricket Board said on Tuesday. Curran noticed the problem after playing for the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League match against Rajasthan Royals on Saturday. Scans have revealed the Surrey left – hand injury and he will fly home for further tests and a full investigation with the English medical team.
Because the injury was expected to put him on the sidelines for a few weeks, Curran’s brother, Tom, was called up to the England squad to replace the 23-year-old.
Surrey’s Reece Topley has been added as a travel reserve and will eventually join the English party.
English players and management who were not at the IPL arrived at their Muscat base on Tuesday ahead of the T20 World Cup campaign.
They play warm-up matches against India and New Zealand before starting their tournament against the West Indies on October 23rd.
