Durham fast bowler Brydon Carse is to fly home from the England Lions tour of Australia because of a knee injury.

The 26-year-old suffered a torn cartilage while practising on the Gold Coast, the squad’s quarantine base.

“He will return to the UK in the coming days and will be seen by a knee consultant to advise on the next steps with the management of his injury,” said a Durham statement.

Carse has taken 95 first-class wickets at an average of 29.62.

The injury announcement came just a day after he signed to play for Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash T20 tournament, which begins on 8 December.

“It’s a real shame for Brydon. We wish him all the best and hope he makes a speedy recovery,” said Western Australia Cricket general manager Kade Harvey.
