England fast bowler Tymal Mills revealed on Wednesday that he had pulled out of the Twenty20 Big Bash League after his two-year-old daughter suffered a stroke just before flying to Australia. The left-arm pacer, an unused squad member as England won the T20 World Cup in Australia last month, pulled out of a planned stint at the Perth Scorchers, citing a “family emergency” as the reason. The 30-year-old provided more details on Wednesday as he posted a photo on Instagram showing his family leaving the hospital.

Along with the picture he wrote: “Home for Christmas after the most horrible 11 days. When we were at the airport about to leave for Australia our daughter had a stroke.

“She lost full use of the left side of her body and we are told they cannot predict how much she will regain.”

He added: “Despite all the challenges our little girl faced and to everyone’s surprise she recovered to the point where we were discharged from the hospital with a pick up and drop off.

“She has had a lot of rehab, medicines and further scans but we are very grateful to be where we are now.”

Mills played seven games as the Scorchers won the title last season and is on the verge of returning to Western Australia after being signed by the club in the inaugural player draft earlier this year.
