England fast bowler Brydon Carse has been ruled out of the third and final One-Day International (ODI) against South Africa on Sunday, which is to take place on June 24 at Headingley in Leeds.
During the Three Lions’ first encounter on Tuesday, July 19 at The Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street, the speedster hurt his right big toe.
Carse, 26, left the squad on Saturday morning, and his condition will be evaluated over the coming week.
Carse and Matthew Potts were replaced by David Willey and Reece Topley in the second ODI on Friday, July 22 at Old Trafford in Manchester.
Carse played in the first ODI, scoring 14 runs and taking the crucial wicket of Heinrich Klaasen.
England Has Made A Brilliant Comeback In The Series
England began the series with a 62-run defeat in Ben Stokes’ farewell match at his home ground but recovered spectacularly in the 2nd match. Jos Buttler and co. won the rain-shortened 29-over match by 118 runs to level the three-match series 1-1.
Sam Curran was named Player of the Match after scoring an 18-ball 35 with two fours and three sixes and taking the important wicket of David Miller.
England were bowled out for 201 in 28.1 overs after being brought in to bat first. Liam Livingstone top-scored for them with 38 off 26 balls.
Dwaine Pretorius, who had replaced Andile Phehlukwayo as a concussion substitution in the first ODI, took four wickets.
South Africa was then dismissed for 83 by the hosts in 20.4 overs. Moeen Ali and Topley each took two wickets, while Adil Rashid claimed three.
