The match between England and South Africa is underway at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The Three Lions, fielding first, got off to a good start, as they got rid of dangerous Quinton de Kock on the second ball of the match.
On his 2nd ball of the first over, Reece Topley managed to get a thick outside edge of Quinton’s bat, and Jos Buttler made no mistake behind the wickets. A dream-like start for Topley did not last long, as a few overs later, he suffered an injury and had to leave the field.

Topley, who has had a start-stop career, injured his left-hand finger on the fifth ball of the 7th over. The physios attended him and asked him to leave the field, following which he was frustrated. He threw a chair and smashed the window pane in the dressing room out of anger. Here is the viral picture of Topley throwing the chair in anger.
Topley has had poor luck in big tournaments, as he was ruled out of the 2022 T20 World Cup due to an injury. Further, he was injured again during IPL 2023 and got ruled out of the cash-studded league.
Topley suffered an injury scare during England’s previous match, but this injury looks serious, and the Three Lions would pray for him to not be ruled out of this tournament.
