Jake Ball ruled out of Hundred by injury, Welsh Fire call up Luke Fletcher


Seamer suffers back problem after playing role in Fire’s opening two victories

Welsh Fire’s availability issues in the men’s Hundred have been compounded with Jake Ball ruled out of the rest of the tournament with a back injury.
Fire were already without Liam Plunkett (injured), Lungi Ngidi (personal reasons) and Jonny Bairstow (Test duty), and will now have to cope without their main death bowler for the rest of the competition.

Ball limped off with an injury during Fire’s defeat against Manchester Originals on Saturday after bowling only 10 balls, and missed their loss against Oval Invincibles on Monday following a scan. He has now been replaced by his Nottinghamshire team-mate Luke Fletcher in the squad, who will be available for selection against Trent Rockets on Friday.
