England bowler Reece Topley has been ruled out of the Twenty20 World Cup with an ankle injury just days before their tournament opener against Afghanistan.

The paceman rolled his left ankle during a fielding drill ahead of England's warm-up win over Pakistan in Brisbane on Monday. Scans confirmed significant ligament damage and the giant left-arm seamer was withdrawn from the squad, with fellow left-armer Tymal Mills promoted from his previous status as travelling reserve.

A statement from the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Wednesday confirmed that Mills had been drafted into the squad.
