Reece Topley has been called up to the England cricket team to replace the injured Tymal Mills. What’s his net worth?

Topley recovered from that injury and has come a long way since. He couldn’t originally get into the World Cup squad, but an injury now to Mills has opened the door for him to make his mark on the global stage.
So, what is Topley’s net worth? Here’s what we know…
Reece Topley: Net worth
The 27-year-old’s main source of income comes from being a cricketer for the England national team. He has also played for Essex, Hampshire and Surrey at domestic level.
Topley, who stands 6ft 7in tall, is a fantastic fast bowler. He is known for his swing and his fearsome yorker, but injuries haven’t been too kind to him over the years.
He has had as many as five stress fractures in his back and even had to undergo shoulder surgery once. He’ll be hoping to put his woes behind him now that he is back in the England setup.
What happened to Tymal Mills?
Mills had been one of England’s standout performers in the T20 World Cup so far. He is the joint-highest wicket-taker in the tournament, but sadly for him, he has been ruled out due to an injury.
Reports claim that Mills suffered a thigh strain while bowling for England in their Super 12 match against Sri Lanka on Monday. He had to limp off after bowling just nine balls, which was a real shame.
Mills’ injury is a huge blow for the Three Lions, but it opens the door for Topley to have his say. He is more than capable of having an impact and it will be interesting to see if he will get the nod when England face South Africa on Saturday.
