Josh Tongue: A pectoral injury blow for the England fast bowler ahead of the summer Tests

Josh Tongue, an England fast bowler, is set back with a pectoral injury and may be out for a significant portion of the summer.

After making his Test debut in the summer of last year, the 26-year-old has not played since August, missing England's Test series in India as well as their white-ball tour of the Caribbean.

This July, August, and September, England will play live on Sky Sports against the West Indies and Sri Lanka.

"Josh (Tongue) has had a setback to his original injury (pectoral injury). There is no timescale on when he'll return to action" an ECB spokeswoman stated.

Tongue's injury blow comes as England plan for life after Jimmy Anderson, who announced his retirement earlier in May.

In two games, the Nottinghamshire seamer claimed ten wickets during his England debut against Ireland in 2023.
