ODI World Cup 2023: The England cricket team has suffered a major setback in the mid-season of the World Cup 2023. Experienced fast bowler Reece Topley has been ruled out of the entire tournament due to injury. The 29-year-old fast bowler suffered the injury while fielding. He injured his finger while catching the ball in the follow-through. According to the information received, he has a minor crack in his finger, but he is not in a position to play for a few days.

Who will get the chance to replace Topley?

Brydon Carse is expected to replace the injured Reece Topley in the England squad. Matthew Potts and George Scrimshaw are also strong contenders for a place in the team. These players performed well for England in their preparation for the campaign before the start of the tournament. Also, considering the Indian conditions, if the team prioritizes spinners, Rehan Ahmed could be a strong contender.

The strong contenders are:
The 28-year-old is a strong contender to replace Topley in the Cars team. The reason for this is his good bowling in the last few matches. Till the time of writing the news, he has played a total of 15 international matches for his team. He has taken 18 wickets in 14 matches. In ODIs, he has taken 14 wickets in 11 innings and in T20Is, he has taken four wickets in three innings.

England’s position in the points table:
The condition of the England team is not very good after 20 matches of the World Cup 2023. The 2019 winners are ninth on the points table with two points (-1.248) after one win and three losses in their four matches.
