England lost a spinner to concussion, while the New Zealand skipper was looking towards ODIs

England spinner Sophie Glenn will miss the next three matches of her side's tour of New Zealand due to a concussion.

Glenn sustained the injury while diving for a catch during the third game of England's T20I series against the Kiwis in Nelson. She sat out the ensuing contest when her side opened up an unassailable 3-1 lead in the five-match series.

The second-ranked T20I bowler in the world will miss the final game of England's T20I series against New Zealand and the first two matches of the ODI series as she continues to recover.

England confirmed the news in a statement. There is a possibility that Glenn may return to the field for the final ODI match of the tour in Hamilton on April 7.

The news is better for Sophie Devine, as the New Zealand skipper hurt her quad during the fourth match of the series in Wellington.

Devine bowled only one over and did not bat during New Zealand's innings. However, the 34-year-old believes the quad strain she picked up is minor and hopes to return during the ODIs.

Devine suggested it's probably just a minor problem.

New Zealand later released a statement indicating that Devine would miss the final T20I match in the series, with hopes of participating in the upcoming ODIs.

Georgia Plimmer, a young batter, has been called up to the New Zealand squad as a replacement for Devine.
