Tymal Mills’ career has been haunted by injuries. While the left-arm pacer took the field during the Hundred after returning from a toe-injury, his toe flared up yet again to rule him out of the competition. He wasn’t too involved with the national team either, with just one appearance out of the last six T20Is, with the same toe injury.
It was his form last year, with Sussex and the Southern Brave that tilted a World Cup berth for him in the Middle East. However, mid-way through the competition, Mills’ suffered a thigh injury, which ruled him out of the competition.
England’s next assignment in the shortest format is against Pakistan, in September, where the Three Lions play seven T20Is. It is yet to be seen if the left-arm seamer manages to be fit in time for the series, which very well could decide his place in the World Cup squad.
Brave, who were already left stranded with multiple crisis to their bowling department will have to now deepen their resources to find an able replacement. With the likes of Chris Jordan, Craig Overton and George Garton not being fully fit, it remains to be seen how the franchise puts up a playing XI for their next fixture.
