England's Topley to miss third ODI against Ireland with groin injury

(Reuters) – England fast bowler Reece Topley will miss Tuesday’s one-day international (ODI) against Ireland after picking up a groin injury, the country’s cricket board (ECB) said on Monday, two days after he made his international comeback.

With England’s first choice fast bowlers rested between tests against the West Indies and upcoming matches against Pakistan, Topley was called up to the ODI squad and he made his first appearance in more than four years on Saturday.

The 26-year-old bowled nine overs and picked up Ireland’s final wicket in England’s four-wicket win.

England have already clinched the three-match series with wins from the first two games. All matches are being played at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton behind closed doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
