IPL: Will Jacks ruled out for Royal Challengers Bangalore after suffering thigh injury with England

England all-rounder Will Jacks has been ruled out of the Indian Premier League with a thigh injury.

The 24-year-old was set to feature in the franchise tournament for the first time after Royal Challengers Bangalore secured his services for £325,000 in December. 

However, Jacks sustained a thigh injury while away with England on a limited-overs tour of Bangladesh and is ruled out for the foreseeable future.

Jacks will now return to domestic club Surrey, who begin their LV= Insurance County Championship campaign next month, and continue his rehabilitation.

"Will Jacks will be out for a period of time due to a thigh injury sustained while on tour in Bangladesh with England," a club statement read.

"As a result of the injury, Jacks will not play in the IPL - where he was due to represent Royal Challengers Bangalore.

"He will now begin rehabilitation under Surrey's supervision."
