Tour over for Tremlett
Chris Tremlett has been ruled out of the remainder of the Test series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates with a recurrence of a lower back injury.
Surrey paceman Tremlett, who featured in last week’s opening match in Dubai, will return to the UK immediately for the injury to be assessed before a course of treatment is agreed.
A decision on a replacement for Tremlett will be made in due course.
Tremlett took to Twitter this morning to express his disappointment at the news.
“Gutted to be going home early from the tour but hopefully get the back sorted out quickly. Thanks for all the kind messages,” he wrote.
