Injured Sophie Ecclestone to return home

Injured Sophie Ecclestone to return home

Injury update: Sophie Ecclestone

Lancashire Thunder bowler Sophie Ecclestone has fractured the fifth metacarpal on her right hand and will fly home from England Women’s tour of India.

Ecclestone sustained the injury in the warm-up ahead of yesterday’s second ODI.

Scans after the match revealed the extent of the injury, which will also rule her out of the upcoming tour of Sri Lanka.

Ecclestone joins fellow spinners Laura Marsh and Kirstie Gordon on the sidelines, although it is hoped that Marsh can return in time for the Sri Lanka leg of the trip.

A replacement for Ecclestone will be announced after the third ODI, due to take place in Mumbai on Thursday (3.30am GMT).
