Tymal Mills set to replace Reece Topley in the England squad for T20 World Cup 2022
Ahead of England’s opening clash against Afghanistan in the T20 World Cup 2022, the Jos Buttler-led side has suffered a blow as left-arm pacer Reece Topley has been ruled out of the tournament.
The fast bowler injured his ankle during the warmup game against Pakistan in Gabba and was deemed unfit to play. He will now head back home, where he will undergo surgery on his ankle.
In his place, England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is all set to draft Tymal Mills in the side. The left-arm pacer, who is among the traveling reserves, is likely to get a nod ahead of Richard Gleeson. Notably, he also was a part of the side during the last World Cup and performed reasonably well.
Mills will be a good addition to the England side considering his experience in the Australian conditions. Also with his ability to bowl at death with long boundaries, he can be a potential threat to any team.

Reece Topley out of the World Cup, leaving an interesting decision over whether they call-up Richard Gleeson or Tymal Mills as a replacement.Advertisement
Mills has a much better record in Australia in T20s: an economy rate of 8.51, while Gleeson has an economy rate of 10.02

Tymal Mills in for Topley makes the death bowling of England stronger but it's the new ball that will force them to play Woakes now.
