Nottinghamshire’s seam bowler Luke Fletcher has been ruled out for the rest of the season after being struck on the head in his followthrough in a T20 Blast fixture at Edgbaston on Saturday.
Fletcher was assessed and treated at the ground before being quickly transferred to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham for further investigations. Although he was discharged on Sunday, he returned to hospital to undergo further tests on Tuesday.
Following consultation with doctors, Luke has been ruled out for the rest of the 2017 season to allow adequate time to recover and complete a monitored care plan to ensure he has a safe return to play,” said Mick Newell, Nottinghamshire’s director of cricket.
“Whilst we are all obviously very disappointed, Luke’s health is of paramount importance and comes first. We will continue to give him every support as he undergoes his recovery.”
