England‘s left-arm pace sensation Tymal Mills will miss the rest of the matches in The Hundred 2022 after undergoing surgery on Friday for his toe injury and this will be a big miss to the Southern Brave side. However, Mills is hopeful of making the T20 World Cup squad for England, which is set to be held in October-November Down Under.
England will play seven T20Is against Pakistan apart from the three T20Is against Australia as a preparation for the T20 World Cup 2022. The left-arm fast bowler had an impressive ‘The Hundred’ tournament last year for the Southern Brave, which earned him a comeback into the England squad for the T20 World Cup 2021.
With his disguised slower ones and the yorkers that he nails to perfection, Mills is expected to play an important part for England. He also played in the Indian T20 League this year for the Mumbai side where he scalped six wickets in five games at an economy rate of 11.17.
Mills has played 13 T20Is so far, picking up 12 wickets at an average of 31.16 and an impressive economy rate of 8.37. The 30-year-old did miss the first game of The Hundred in 2022 but played the second one against the Birmingham Phoenix. He returned with figures of 0 for 33 at 1.65 runs per ball. The left-hander missed out in the third game against the London Spirit again.
After starting their campaign with a win this year, Southern Brave have lost two games consecutively and the bowling attack has had several concerns already. Chris Jordan, George Garton, and Craig Overton have availability issues and the Southern Brave are likely to name a replacement for Mills now. Mills and Jordan have combined well for Southern Brave in the past and it has been a deadly combination for England as well.
The Southern Brave play the Oval Invincibles in their upcoming match of The Hundred Men’s 2022 at The Oval on Sunday.
