Joe Denly Dropped Due to Ankle Injury

He suffered ligament damage in his right ankle which led him to be dropped

England batsman Joe Denly was ruled out of the five-match Twenty20 International (T20I) series against New Zealand. He suffered an ankle injury during practice ahead of the first T20I match. Denly sustained ligament damage on his right ankle. He was replaced by debutant Lewis Gregory.

‘He will now start a rehabilitation programme and will be routinely assessed ahead of the Test series against the Black Caps starting on November 21’, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said. Following his injury, Denly is still in the Test squad for the tour. The Test series will begin on November 21.

Denly missed the first match of the series. England won by seven wickets against the Kiwis. In the second T20I match, New Zealand won by 21 runs after declaring a final score of 176/8 in 20 overs.

Denley made his T20I debut in 2009 against Australia. He had played 10 T20I matches since his debut. The English batsman also plays for the Kolkata Knight Riders, a franchise under the Indian Premier League (IPL). To know more about the IPL, read the page on Betwala.
