‘Isse accha Robinosn ko le lete’ – Fans react as Brydon Carse replaces injured Reece Topley in England’s ODI World Cup 2023 squad

Brydon Carse

England suffered a huge blow as Reece Topley got injured during the game against South Africa. After the match, the left-arm pacer was ruled out of the tournament. Topley was an excellent resource for England, who could bowl well in the powerplay overs. His absence has forced England to get Brydon Carse in the squad for the ODI World Cup 2023.

Carse has been in and around England’s squad in recent times. The pacer can bowl long spells and be helpful in Indian conditions. Though Topley was a different kind of bowler, England is happy to consider Carse in the lineup. However, England has not yet recalled Jofra Archer in their squad for the tournament. Interestingly, England has opted not to select spinners in the tournament, considering the spin-friendly conditions in India.

Reports suggested that the technical committee of the ODI World Cup 2023 approved Carse as the replacement of Topley for the rest of the tournament for England. “The Event Technical Committee of the Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 has approved Brydon Carse as a replacement for Reece Topley in the England squad,” a statement read. Topley’s injury was serious and ruled him out of the game against South Africa.

‘Carse, who has played 12 ODIs, was named as a replacement’ – Reports

The statement said that the replacements for players need their approval. “The replacement of a player requires the approval of the Event Technical Committee before the replacement player can be officially added to the squad,” read the statement. Carse has played 12 ODIs in his career till now. While England had other options in their dugout, they were happy to announce Carse as Topley’s replacement.
