England seamer Reece Topley ruled out of third ODI vs Ireland with groin strain

England seamer Reece Topley will miss the third and final one-day international against Ireland with a left groin strain.

The 26-year-old left-armer will have a scan to confirm the extent of the injury but England are not expecting him to be out of action for more than a couple of weeks.

Even if the injury does prove to be relatively minor, Topley will no doubt be frustrated to miss Tuesday’s game at the Ageas Bowl having made his first England appearance since 2016 in Saturday’s win in Southampton, after an injury-ravaged few years.
