Shoulder Injury Ends Sam Billings’ England’s World Cup squad Hopes

Cricket

England’s batsman Sam billings will be out for up to five months after dislocating his left shoulder in Thursday’s Royal London One-Day Cup game at Glamorgan.

The Kent fielder injured his shoulder after trying to stop the ball mid-off. He was treated with oxygen before leaving the field in agony.

He was seen by a specialist today, Friday 26, and Kent confirmed the 27-year-old will have to undergo surgery which means he’ll be out for the whole of summer:

“The scan highlighted significant damage to his shoulder, meaning he will require surgical intervention,” Paul Downton, Kent cricket Boss said.

“This surgery has been scheduled for next week and it is anticipated that he will be back to fitness within three – five months.

“I know I speak for everyone at Kent Cricket when I say we really feel for Sam. To have picked up this kind of injury ahead of what was set to be an exciting summer is tough.”

Billings, who was already named for England’s ODI against Ireland and T20I against Pakistan will now be replaced with Ben Foakes.
