England's Tymal Mills ruled out of T20 World Cup

Medium pacer Reece Topley will replace Mills in England's 15-player squad

England's left-arm pacer Tymal Mills has been ruled out of the T20 World Cup due to thigh strain he suffered during Monday's Super 12s match against Sri Lanka. Reece Topley will now replace him in England's 15-player squad.

During the 14th over Sri Lanka's chase Mills bowled three legal deliveries and a wide before stopping midway in his run-up to the fourth ball. The pacer then limped off the field after what looked like a quadricep injury. However, scans after that match revealed that it was a thigh strain, which had blighted the 29-year old's progress in 2018.

Sam Billings replaced him as the substitute fielder while Chris Woakes completed the remaining three balls of the over.

Mills bowled 1.3 overs and conceded 19 runs without claiming any wickets in the match. The left-armer is England's joint top wicket-taker in the T20 World Cup alongside leg-spinner Adil Rashid with seven wickets from four matches at an economy of 8.

Monday's win over Sri Lanka almost confirmed a semifinal spot for England and will next face South Africa on Saturday.
