Reece Topley has just started playing for England internationally however, injuries seem to cut short his promise and potential in recent times. 

The Hampshire and England pacer, has been laid low by another stress fracture of the back and will miss the rest of the County season. The 24-year-old is also set to undergo a surgery next week.

Topley has already suffered four stress fractures on the back and as a result of his continuous injuries,  the former Essex pacer has played a mere two Championship matches in the last three seasons. The 24-year-old is also on a white-ball only contract this season.

He took part in the 'A' tri-series, involving England Lions, India A and Windies A, where he picked up eight wickets in the competition. However, he was dropped from Hampshire's side that won the final of the Royal London Cup versus Kent last month.

For Topley's sake, he would like to recover as soon as possible abe get back on the cricket field.
