On Instagram, Bairstow wrote that he won’t be eligible for selection in “the short future” and provided a link to a statement confirming this.
Jonny Bairstow was hurt in what was described as a “freak accident” while he was playing golf on Friday, which delivered a significant setback to England’s ambitions of winning the Twenty20 World Cup in 2022, which will be held in the United Arab Emirates.
According to a statement released by the English cricket board, the batsman for England and Yorkshire, Jonathan Bairstow, will not be able to participate in the rest of the summer or the ICC Men’s Twenty20 World Cup. Due to the injury, Bairstow will not be able to participate for the foreseeable future.
On Instagram, Bairstow wrote that he won’t be eligible for selection in “the short future” and provided a link to a statement confirming this. “I am really sorry, but I will not be able to participate in any of the games or tours in the near future. The reason for this is because I was involved in a bizarre accident that caused me to injure my lower leg, and it will require surgery “The author was Bairstow.
He then proceeded to describe how he ended up with such a “freak” injury.
The wicketkeeper-batter explained his injuries in a letter by saying, “The accident occurred when I slipped on the golf course this morning.”
“I am devastated and want to wish everyone for this week at The Oval and the boys that are heading to Australia for the T20 World Cup all the best,” he continued. “First and foremost, I want to wish the best of luck to everyone.”
Due to the fact that Bairstow has been in terrific form across all formats for England this year, his absence will have a significant impact.
While Ben Duckett has been added to England’s team for the third Test against South Africa, the World Cup squad still does not have a replacement player identified for him.
Earlier on Friday, England made their team announcement for the Twenty20 World Cup, and the one omission that stood out the most was famous opener Jason Roy.
On October 22nd, England will open their T20 World Cup campaign against Afghanistan in Perth. Their opponent will be Afghanistan.
