Reece Topley has been ruled out of the rest of the #CWC23
We're all with you, Toppers ❤️
England's World Cup campaign has also been marred by the absence of Jofra Archer, who is currently in injury rehab and was ruled out as a potential replacement by head coach Matthew Mott.
Reece Topley's career has been marked by a series of unfortunate setbacks, with this injury being the latest in a string of challenges.
In preparation for the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia, Topley suffered an unexpected injury while conducting catching practice near the boundary. During the practice session, he tripped over an advertising hoarding and incurred a ligament injury.
Before that, the fast bowler endured a series of stress fractures on his back, which ultimately necessitated surgery. His return to the cricketing arena was a strenuous journey, but Topley managed to establish himself as an integral part of England's white-ball setup.
Despite his injury setbacks, Topley had been a standout performer for England in the ongoing World Cup. He impressively picked up eight wickets and was the team's leading wicket-taker, even after missing a game before encountering this final setback.
England's search for a suitable replacement for Topley begins as they aim to overcome this formidable challenge in their World Cup campaign.">
