Star Player of England Gets Injured Before India Series

Star Player of England Gets Injured Before India Series

A major blow has dented the hopes of the English team ahead of the much hyped series against team India at home.

Cricket news: The key bowler of England will miss the T20I series against India

Firstly they started their limited overs international season with a poor defeat against Scotland. Now as they were getting ready to host Australia and India, their hopes are dented by the injury of Chris Woakes.

Woakes is one of the key bowlers of the English squad. He has received a tear in his right quad which will force him to remain side-lined and miss all the international action for at least three weeks.

The news of the injury was announced by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) in an official statement. They did not mention the actual date of Woakes’ return but said that they are hopeful of his quick recovery.

England will play 3 ODIs and a T20I against Australia, and all these games will be missed by both Woakes and Ben Stokes.

After the Australia series, England will face India for 3 T20Is and 3 ODIs, where Ben Stokes is expected to make a comeback in the T20I series but Woakes will still remain side-lined.

Woakes’ medical condition will be assessed before the first ODI match which will be played at Nottinham on July 12. Woakes had received the injury during the second Test against Pakistan at Leeds. However the cricket board is saying that it is a chronic knee injury that is keeping him out.

“Woakes has had an injection for the knee issue last Monday and will now undertake a rehabilitation and conditioning programme to address both injuries. A date for return cannot be specified at this stage, but he will not be available before the ODI series against India,” the ECB stated in an official statement.
