Injury Blow for Michael Bracewell: Achilles Rupture During Worcestershire T20, Surgery Ahead

The six to eight-month absence will prevent the New Zealand all-rounder Michael Bracewell from competing in the 50-over World Cup in October.

Michael Bracewell is Sidelined for Significant Amount

After rupturing his right Achilles while representing Worcestershire in the T20 Blast, Michael Bracewell is expected to spend a significant amount of time on the sidelines. The 50-over World Cup in October will not be attended by the New Zealand international, who will have surgery in the UK and then begin a six- to eight-month rehabilitation period. On June 9 at Headingley, Bracewell was batting for Worcestershire against Yorkshire when he suffered the injury. His team was attempting to chase down 225, and he was forced to retire hurt on 11 (7) in the second over. The all-rounder, who was expected to be available for the entirety of Worcestershire’s T20 season, amassed seven wickets in seven appearances while scoring 91 runs at a strike rate of 124.65.
