English fast-player Olly Stone Ruled Out of 2nd Test Ashes due to Back Injury, Australia Vs England
Olly Stone to miss the second ash test against Australia after ruled out for at least two weeks for a back injury. Olly Stone suffers an injury at a training session. He now joins fellow fast bowler James Anderson and Mark Wood not playing 2nd Ashes Test, which begins on August 14.
Paul Farbrace, Sporting Director said:
It’s disappointing for Olly stones that he’s been ruled out for two weeks of cricket so important because of the recurrence of his back injury.
Jofra Archer also suffers a side injury in recent weeks, but Jofra Archer expected to replace Anderson for the second test after England collapsed and loss by 251-Runs.
Archer took six wickets and reached a century for the second Sussex XI on Tuesday to press his case for a Test debut.
Olly Stone, a 25-years-old player took three wickets in his first Test appearance against Ireland last month and was in the team for the first Test at his home Edgbaston, but did not play.
The third ash test at Headingley begins on 22 August, making Stone’s availability for that match highly unlikely.
