London: England All-rounder Sam Curran has been ruled out of the ICC T20 World Cup with a lower back injury, which he had sustained during a game in the ongoing Indian Premier League, the England & Wales Cricket Board said on Tuesday.

“Curran complained of back pain after Chennai Super Kings Indian Premier League fixture on Saturday against Rajasthan Royals. Results of the scan revealed the injury,” the ECB stated. He will be flying back to the United Kingdom in the next few days and will have further scans and a full review later this week from the ECB’s medical team.

Curran’s brother, Tom, has been picked in England’s squad for the limited-overs World Cup tournament. In addition, Surrey’s left-arm seamer Reece Topley has been added as a travelling reserve. Topley will be joining the England team in due course.

23-year-old Sam Curran did not have the best of time this IPL with merely 56 runs from nine games and nine wickets at an expensive economy rate of 9.93. He has so far played 24 Tests, 11 ODIs and 16 T20Is. 

The England players and support staff arrived at their Muscat base earlier on Tuesday and will remain in Oman until October 16 before moving to Dubai for the start of the tournament. The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup starts from October 17 in the United Arab Emirates and Oman.
