“Bairstow sustained a lower limb injury in a freak accident while playing golf on Friday in Leeds. He will see a specialist next week to ascertain the full extent of the injury. A further announcement will be made in due course.”

Said the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) on their website

Bairstow disclosed in his Instagram story that he will require surgery for the lower limb damage. He sustained it after slipping on a golf course earlier in the day.

“Unfortunately, I will be unavailable for all games/ tours in the immediate future. The reason being is that I have injured my lower leg in a freak accident, and it shall need an operation. The injury came when I slipped on the golf course this morning. I am gutted and wish everyone the best this week at The Oval; firstly, the boys that are going to Australia for the T20 World Cup. Gutted! I will be back.”

Batting Options For England

Ben Duckett, the batsman for Nottinghamshire who appeared in four Tests for England in 2016. He has also been added to the team for the third Test at The Oval. A series-deciding match between the home team and the Proteas with a score of 1-1. After designated opener Jason Roy was benched due to poor English summer performance. England men’s managing director Rob Key stated that Bairstow would open the batting in the T20 WC alongside Jos Buttler.

“The latest we could announce the World Cup squad was the 16th. So it wasn’t like we could use Pakistan. We’d be taking a gamble on him (Roy) finding form in that time. So we felt with the abundance of openers we had. We felt Jonny Bairstow is one of the best openers in T20 cricket in the world – he’s done it in the IPL but been very good in the middle order as well.”
