The ICC T20 World Cup is underway with the First-Round fixtures that will be followed by the Super 12 matches commencing on October 22, Saturday in Australia. Players dream to represent their national side in the grand stage and etch their names in the history books.

Missing out on an opportunity like the showpiece event due to an injury could be one of the worst feelings ever for a player. The sides participating in the marquee tournament make it a point to keep fitness levels at peak to help compete for the title.

However, there have been many big stars who will miss out on the World Cup due to an injury that will keep them in the sidelines. Unfortunately, this year’s edition has already seen many players who will miss out on the competition down under and the management had to skip few names unwillingly due to injuries concerns.

T20 World Cup 2022: Injured XI

1. Josh Inglis (wk)

Australia Wicketkeeper-batter Josh Inglis is known for his sharp work behind the stumps and innovative batting skills. The player clawed his way into the national setup following his impressive display in the teams he has represented.

The defending champions had his services included in the T20 World Cup squad and were hoping for him to be an integral part of the set up. However, Inglis suffered a bizarre injury to his hand while playing golf.

The bizarre incident turned worse what was supposed to be a relaxing day off from training. The player sustained a deep cut to his right hand when the handle of the club broke unexpectedly at the New South Wales Golf Club. Inglis is ruled out of World Cup already and his replacement is expected to be announced soon.
