England cricketer Tymal Mills has begun the terrifying episode in which his two-year-old daughter was temporarily paralyzed on one side of her body when she suffered a stroke just before he was about to fly to Australia.

Mills played for the Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League last season and was on his way to do so again at the airport when his daughter was stricken with the serious condition.

The bowler explained what happened in an Instagram post on Wednesday and had good news to share.

“Home for Christmas after the most horrific 11 days,” he wrote alongside a photo of him and his daughter leaving the hospital she was being treated in.

‘When we were at the airport to leave for Australia, our daughter ended up having a stroke.

“She lost full use of the left side of her body and we were told they couldn’t predict how much she would regain.

“Despite all the challenges she faced, our little girl has amazed everyone with her recovery to the point where we were discharged with her hopping and hopping from the hospital.

“She has a lot of rehab, medication and scans ahead of her, but we are so thankful to be where we are today.”

Mills made seven appearances for Perth as they won the BBL title last season, but retired from the team just before this year’s campaign began.

The Scorchers announced the news with a statement saying he would not be available due to a ‘family emergency’ adding that ‘the club fully supports Mills’ decision and sends his best wishes and thoughts to his family at this time sends’.

Mills was last in Australia as a member of the England team that won the T20 World Cup, but he did not play in a match for his country.

Perth are also starless Mitchell Marsh, who is out this season due to ankle surgery, and Englishman Laurie Evans, whose contract was terminated after testing positive for a banned substance.
