- You will be scanned to see if you can continue in the T20 World Cup
- Mills has played in all four England games, but has a history of injury problems.
- Jos Buttler was the star with a century when England took a 26-race win
Tymal Mills faces a scan in a tight right ring in the next few days that will likely determine whether or not he will participate in the remainder of England’s T20 World Cup campaign.
Mills was in the middle of his second over in the Super 12 group game against Sri Lanka in Sharjah on a sultry Monday night and stopped abruptly in his delivery step before limping off the field.
England, whose 26-race victory over Sri Lanka practically sealed their place in the semi-finals, says the left arm pacemaker will undergo a scan “in the next 48 hours to determine the extent of the injury.”

Mills limped off and is ready to undergo a scan to see if he can continue in the tournament.
Mills has had terrible luck with injuries throughout his career, which has meant that he was overlooked by England for more than four years leading up to this tournament.
He revealed that he spent three months last winter in a back brace after suffering another stress fracture, but was one of the stars of the inaugural issue of The Hundred in the summer, which led to his inclusion here.
Mills has played in all four of England’s games, taking seven wickets, to help them move to the edge of a spot in the knockout stages.

It was a night when Jos Buttler was the star when he turned a century and no one else was over 40.
He did it when England needed him most, rescuing them from stagnation in half the innings and rushing them to a total (163 out of four) that proved too much for Sri Lanka.
As if that wasn’t enough, Buttler then made a brilliant outing on the field in a tense stage of a valiant chase in Sri Lanka.

Moments earlier, Jason Roy and runner-up Sam Billings had combined magnificently on the edge to catch Wanindu Hasaranga and eliminate a dangerous 53rd place on the sixth field with their captain Dasun Shanaka.
Now Buttler nearly ended Sri Lanka’s hopes, discarding his right glove before picking up the ball and throwing the stumps with Shanaka stranded.
The last five wickets fell by eight, as England, the first team to win a light game in this tournament after being put at bat, did so by four of four.
