Heather Knight, the captain of England, was excluded from the rest of the Commonwealth Games and the Hundred games with a hip injury.

Knight has not played any of the two England matches at Commonwealth Games so far after having suffered the injury during the first T20i in the bilateral series against South Africa in Chelmsford on July 21.

The camp in England said on Wednesday that the injury had “failed to settle as planned and that Knight would continue to receive treatment”.

Nat Sciver will remain the captain of England at the Commonwealth Games, where no replacement player can be called, leaving the host nation with a team of 14 people for the rest of the competition. Knight will stay in Birmingham with the team.

Knight had injections in his hip articulation while sitting on the last two games in the South Africa series in order to overcome the injury, but Sciver revealed Tuesday that Knight had suffered from other analyzes after only noticing a minor improvement.

“She’s not in a good place,” said Sciver. “It is better than it has been in recent days, still in a little pain with its hip.

“It will probably be a little quick to play against New Zealand. She went to see our doctor and did another scan.”

England has won their two group games so far in the absence of Knight, with Alice Capsey, 17, with N ° 3, SCIVER at No. 4, and Amy Jones holding place n ° 5.

England is already assured of a place in the semi-finals of Edgbaston, with their last group match against New Zealand on Thursday to determine who ends the top of group B.

Australia, which is guaranteed at the head of group A after having beaten Pakistan by 44 points in its last group match on Wednesday, will play the second team in group B; And group B leaders will play Wednesday evening winner between India and Barbados in the semi-finals on Saturday.

Knight had to play a second season as a captain of the spirit of London in the edition of The Women’s Hundred of this year. London Spirit started their campaign against Southern Brave in Southampton on August 12.
