Denly to miss rest of series
Denly to miss rest of series

Kent’s Joe Denly will miss the remainder of the IT20 series against New Zealand after scan results showed that he has sustained ligament damage to his right ankle.

The Kent batsman picked up the injury in practice on Thursday in Christchurch.

At this stage, he will now start a rehabilitation programme and will be routinely assessed ahead of the two-match Test series against the Black Caps starting on November 21.

England will not call up a replacement for the four remaining matches in the IT20 series.
