England fans will have their hearts in their mouth as one of the premier pace bowlers Reece Topley was seen limping off the field after suffering a blow to his knee while fielding in the ongoing 13th match of the 2023 ODI World Cup in Delhi.

England started their World Cup campaign with a crushing nine-wicket loss to New Zealand. In their second game against Bangladesh, tall left-arm pacer Topley was brought into the playing XI in place of Moeen Ali and the move worked wonders. Topley scalped four wickets in the tie that the defending champions won by 137 runs.

In the match against Afghanistan, which is currently being played in Delhi, England bowlers were put to the sword by Rahmanullah Gurbaz but Topley wasn’t as easy to hit away. However, his physical condition has now become a concern as he hurt his knee while diving to stop a boundary in the 16th over. After getting up, Topley held his right knee and immediately signaled for the physio to come and have a look. Soon, he was seen limping off the ground with the physio walking beside him.
