Topley injured his ankle by stepping on the boundary cushion during fielding practice before the warm-up match against Pakistan. The injury proved to be a major blow for England, with Topley ruled out of the tournament. Traveling reserve player Timmill Mills has been named in his place. Mills played a key role in England’s T20 World Cup campaign in 2021.
England’s highest wicket-taker
With experience in Australian conditions, England will hope Tummel Mills fills Topple’s place. However, Topple’s absence will be a big blow for England. Coincidentally, Topal replaces Mills at the 2021 World Cup. Left-arm fast bowler Topple is England’s highest wicket-taker in T20 Internationals in 2022, taking 17 wickets at an average of 28 and an economy rate of 7.80. Tipley has been very effective for England in the power play and death overs.
Dushantha Chimera injured, Kisun Rajita joins the team
Sri Lanka also suffered a major setback before reaching the Super 12 stage. In-form fast bowler Dushmantha Chimera has been injured. Kasan Rajita has been included in the team in his place. This is the second setback for Sri Lanka. Top-order batsman Dhanushka Ganathilaka has suffered a hamstring injury. Asian Bandara has been included in the team in his place. Bandara Traveling Reserve.
Chimera suffered the injury while bowling during Sri Lanka’s 79-run win over the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday. The team officials then decided to back up and asked Kasan Rajita to fly for the remainder of the event. Sri Lanka are currently third in Group A and need to beat the Netherlands to reach the last 12. Chamera took four wickets in Sri Lanka’s first two matches in Australia and his absence will be sorely felt by captain Dasan Shanaka.
UAE all-rounder Jowar Fareed injured
At the same time, the United Arab Emirates has also been forced to make changes in the team. All-rounder Jowar Farid has been injured due to a fracture in his leg. He has been replaced by Fahad Nawaz in the team.
