NEWS: Anya Shrubsole Injured – Will Miss 1st & 2nd ODIs

Anya Shrubsole has been ruled-out of the first two ODIs in England’s 5-match series versus West Indies. The fast bowler sustained a side-strain during yesterday’s warm-up match against Jamaica.

The news presents something of a problem for England because their back-up quick, Beth Langston, is also out of the first couple of matches, as she completes recovery from a broken finger; so it seems likely England will be taking an extra spinner onto the park tomorrow, though of course they do have all-rounders Nat Sciver and Georgia Elwiss to offer some additional seam options for captain Heather Knight.

The 1st ODI starts tomorrow (Saturday) at 3:30pm UK time.

  1. Shrubsole seems to pick up a lot of these little niggles. It’s bad news for England, and I hope she recovers quickly. This does show up how we are missing Farrant in the squad though. She must have been unlucky to miss out, and we could now definitely use her.
