Injury blow for Corey Anderson
Big hitting all-rounder Corey Anderson is to return to New Zealand to receive treatment on a back injury.
Anderson was set to join up with Somerset for the second half of the NatWest T20 Blast after the Black Caps current ODI series against England. However, the 24 year old has not played since the first Test at Lord’s after suffering a back injury early on in the match.
Despite receiving treatment from the touring side’s medical staff over the last few weeks, the decision has been taken for him to return home for further therapy.
Somerset Director of Cricket Matt Maynard said: “Obviously this is a blow for both Somerset and Corey but injuries happen in sport. We wish Corey a speedy recovery and I can assure all Members and supporters that we are actively seeking a suitable replacement.”
