Byline: ANI

London, Oct.6 (ANI): England all-rounder Paul Collingwood has been ruled out of this month's Champions League tournament due to a torn muscle in one of his buttocks.

Collingwood, 33, was due to play for his Indian Premier League franchise Delhi Daredevils in the two-week club tournament, which starts on Thursday, reports The Independent.

However, a scan yesterday revealed a grade two tear in one of his gluteal muscles and he has pulled out of Delhi's 15-man squad on medical grounds.

"We have a contract with the IPL about making our players available, however Collingwood has picked up a little niggle in his buttock," revealed coach Andy Flower, before England departed South Africa at the weekend.

The injury is not expected to affect Collingwood's participation in England's tour to South Africa next month.

"It's anticipated with rest and rehabilitation, he will be available for the tour of South Africa," an England and Wales Cricket Board spokesman said. (ANI)
