Alice Capsey will miss the remainder of England’s limited-overs tour of the West Indies on Sunday due to a collarbone fracture in the first match of the ODI series. This is a sad news for England fans.

The 18-year-old started the innings by contributing 17 runs to help England win by 142 runs but was injured in the sixth over of the West Indies’ reaction as she tried to push the ball on the boundary.

Alice Capsey was taken to a hospital in Antigua after an initial assessment, with the ECB later confirming the nature of the injury and saying she would now miss the remaining two matches of the ODI series as well as five T20Is.

There is no suggestion that Capsey’s participation in the 2023 Women’s T20 World Cup, which is being played in South Africa in February, is doubtful.

“Alice Capsey suffered an on-field injury during the first ODI against the West Indies Women’s team. After further investigation, she has broken her left collarbone and will be unavailable for the rest of the tour. Capsey will now return home to the UK.

The Surrey batsman posted on Instagram soon after that she would be back stronger than ever in no time. Having become England’s youngest player to score a T20I half-century last summer at the age of 17, Capsey has established herself as one of the most exciting prospects in the game.

Capsey, who can grow as an all-rounder for England with her ability to bowl off-break, was awarded England’s central contract for the first time in November.

She arrived with England in the West Indies after a stellar performance for the Melbourne Stars in Australia’s Big Bash, with a brilliant unbeaten 80 against the Hobart Hurricanes once again highlighting her potential.
