England player Jonny Bairstow ruled out of 2022 T20 World Cup due to freak injury

England wicketkeeper and batsman Jonny Bairstow has been ruled out of the 2022 T20 World Cup due to an unforeseen injury. This is a hugely tragic and ironic event as England had announced their squad for the tournament today and Jonny Bairstow was obviously one of them.

It is said that he suffered a lower limb injury while playing golf. This is what many call an “abnormal injury”. Full details on why he won’t be taking part in the T20 World Cup, however, will be announced shortly.

Let’s take a look at England’s original squad first before discussing how much they will miss Jonny Bairstow.

England squad for the 2022 T20 World Cup: Buttler (C), Moeen, Bairstow, Brook, Sam Curran, Jordan, Livingstone, Malan, Rashid, Salt, Stokes, Topley, Willey, Woakes, Wood.

Jonny Bairstow has transformed completely over the past two months and has become one of England’s most essential players in any game format. India and we already know its caliber in the shortest format of the match.

Bairstow, who prefers to open, is an explosive left-handed batsman and sort of a Sehwag-esque player. He will certainly be missed by England at the T20 World Cup.

On the other hand, the absence of Bairstow will be a sigh of relief for all the other teams. Jos Buttler is also a big threat in England’s batting line-up, but with Jonny Bairstow out, England’s batting line-up doesn’t look so dangerous anymore.

But the question remains, who will replace Bairstow in the squad then? Well it looks like Alex Hales will finally have the opportunity to play for the national team again – something he has been dreaming of for years.

However, in this case, England will not have a solid wicket-keeper backup for Jos Buttler in an emergency and therefore will need to make their decision wisely.
