Nottinghamshire pacer Luke Fletcher suffered a head injury during the NatWest T20 Blast match against Warwickshire and was taken to a hospital for medical attention.
According to initial reports, it emerged that the injury was of a serious nature and play was suspended for more than 30 minutes before it resumed.
While a lot of cricket fans sat up in anxiety to know the status of the popular paceman, Fletcher’s team-mate Jake Ball tweeted a picture of the former signalling a thumbs up from the hospital bed, to end the scare.

Fletcher, who was bowling the over, had no time to react to a powerful straight drive from Sam Hain and was struck on his head. Immediately after the blow, Fletcher was seen wrapping up his head in a towel while walking off the field. As the umpires immediately called for medical assistance, the pacer appeared conscious while being assisted off the field by the physio and was later taken to a hospital.
