Ligament damage rules Denly out of England's T20 series with New Zealand
Joe Denly has been ruled out for the remainder of England's T20 international series against New Zealand with a right ankle injury.
The Kent batsman did not feature in England's seven-wicket opening game win on Friday, having picked up the injury in practice on Thursday, with scans since showing the 33-year-old has sustained ligament damage.
A replacement will not be called up for the remaining four matches of the series with Denly to be monitored in view of a return to the Test Series against the Black Caps, which begins on November 21.
The second T20 international with New Zealand will be playing in Wellington on Sunday.Modified 21 Dec 2019, 00:55 IST
