Topley Ruled Out With Side Strain - Kia Oval Skip to main content

Surrey and England fast bowler Reece Topley has been ruled out for 4-6 weeks after suffering a side strain.

Topley, who has enjoyed a successful season in the LV= Insurance County Championship so far, suffered the injury to his right-hand side whilst representing the Second XI against Essex at the LSE Ground in New Malden on Wednesday.

Given the likelihood that he will be unable to return to high intensity training until the middle of July, the injury is likely to rule the fast bowler out of Surrey’s upcoming campaign in the Vitality Blast as well as the two County Championship games against Hampshire and Somerset.
