T20 World Cup: England set to go without Mark Wood for key Australia shock
| Latest News Headlines | Yahoo news
It seems extremely unlikely that he will play on Saturday, but it is hoped that he can take part in Monday’s game against Sri Lanka. The short deadline means England will likely want to polish their squad for this game.
With the Ashes looming, Wood is a key player for England this winter, so they don’t want to take any chances.
Tom Curran, the reserve crimper, is also out with a knee injury and will not play on Saturday.
Australia kicked off their campaign with a landslide victory that saw David Warner return to form with 65 of 42 balls. Vice-captain Pat Cummins predicts his teammate will be on track again this weekend.
“He’s a big game player,” he said. “I’m sure tomorrow you’ll see him puff up his chest and he’s someone our whole team loves to play with.
“We all go with him and support him. It’s fantastic to see him again in the runs, we always knew they weren’t far.
