Tom Curran to be sidelined for few months due to stress facture

England’s Tom Curran is set to be sidelined from cricket for at least three to four months after picking up a lower back stress fracture, the Surrey County Cricket Club said in a statement on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old Surrey player went for scans when he felt discomfort in his lower back while taking part in the Big Bash League 2021-22 for Sydney Sixers. Later the scans revealed the extent of the injury which rules him out for the next 4 months.

Surrey in an official statement said Curran will not be fit before the start of the T20 Blast, expected to begin in early summer, which means he’ll be missing the IPL and England’s white-ball tours till the start of the T20 Blast.

“It is estimated that the 26-year-old will not return to cricket before the start of the Vitality Blast,” the Surrey Cricket Club said in a statement.

Curran has already been left out of England’s 16-player squad for the Twenty20 series against West Indies, which starts later this month. Curran had played in four games for the Sydney Sixers in BBL 11, having missed the whole of last season due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

England hasn’t announced a replacement for Tom Curran as the squad will be travelling from the UK to Barbados to start the five match T20I series starting January 2022.
