Middlesex’s Fran Wilson, who was hotly tipped for an international recall this summer following the retirement of Charlotte Edwards, is fighting to be fit for England’s Pakistan series, after suffering a freak injury during a warm up last weekend.
An ECB spokesperson told CRICKETher:
“Fran injured her right knee during the warm up of Middlesex’s match against Kent on 15th May. She’s undergoing treatment and a rehab programme at the moment, and her availability for selection for the Pakistan series will be assessed closer to the time.”
It doesn’t sound great, but friends of Wilson have told us that she is desperate not to miss out on what she knows could be her big break, and that she is still feeling optimistic that she will be back sooner rather than later, in time to push for selection against Pakistan.
