England bowler Reece Topley has retired from the T20 World Cup with an ankle injury

Reece Topley has been ruled out of the T20 World Cup with an ankle injury, a major headache for England just three days before the start of his campaign.

Topley twisted his left ankle after standing on a border promotional pad and then landed awkwardly during some catching practice ahead of England’s six-wicket warm-up win over Pakistan in Brisbane.

Although there has been no confirmation from the England and Wales Cricket Board, the PA news agency understands scans have shown significant damage and the 6ft 7in left arm seamer tournament is over.

Any change to the 15-man squad will have to be ratified by the International Cricket Council, but England have two Tempo bowlers in their three traveling reserves in Tymal Mills and Richard Gleeson.

Mills, another left-armer who bowls faster than Topley, appears likely to be drafted by England, who begin their bid to unify cricket’s two most coveted white-ball trophies in Perth on Saturday.
