Saqib Mahmood ruled out of season with back stress fracture

England

Saqib Mahmood, the England fast bowler, has been ruled out for the season after being diagnosed with a lumbar stress fracture.

Mahmood, who made his Test debut in the Caribbean in March, missed Lancashire’s most-recent Championship fixture with lower back pain and subsequent scans revealed the full extent of the problem.

His absence will further deplete England’s seam-bowling resources for the upcoming series against New Zealand, with Chris Woakes and Mark Wood both out of contention and Ollie Robinson struggling for fitness.
