Freya Kemp is not going to be a part of England women’s T20I side due to back pain.
England women completed a clean sweep over the Windies women in the third and final ODI and are now preparing for the 5-match T20I series.
The English women had a rather easy win in the third and final ODI against the West Indies women.
Kemp is now not going to play the T20I series and is going to be homebound for getting further scans to rule out the exact problem.
The first of these matches is beginning on Sunday at Antigua.
England women are sorely going to miss the services of Kemp during this T20I series as they find her replacement.
After Antigua, the action will shift to Barbados for the remainder of the matches on 14, 17, 18, and 22 December.
Kemp is also going to fly back to England for further scans. This back pain has limited Kemp’s cricketing career.
She also now joins Alice Capsey on the sidelines as the latter broke her collarbone in a fielding accident.
All the women’s teams are busily preparing for the upcoming Women’s T20 World Cup which is only 2 months away.
England women would want all of their players to be in peak health before the mega event commences next year.
Australia women are the current holders of the T20 World Cup as they beat India women in the final of the tournament.
