WORCESTERSHIRE'S Pat Brown has pulled out of England's one-day and T20 tour of South Africa having again suffered with a stress fracture in his lower back.

The 21-year-old star of the County's T20 Blast triumph in 2018 felt the problem flare up while getting ready to face Melbourne Stars in Australia's Big Bash League.

Scans showed a partial fracture, ruling Brown out for the rest of the winter.

The former University of Worcester student will return to New Road for treatment.
