Abu Dhabi injury update
It hasn’t all been good news for Somerset on our pre-season tour of Abu Dhabi.
Tom Banton is on his way home whilst Jamie Overton has been unable to feature in the three matches so far.
We spoke with Head of Science & Medicine, Jamie Thorpe earlier today to get the full details.
“Unfortunately Tom Banton has been ruled out of the remainder of the tour,” said Jamie. “He has been diagnosed with acute tonsillitis and will be returning to the UK to recover fully with a view to being fully fit by the start of the domestic season.
“Jamie Overton felt some mild ankle discomfort in the second training session of the tour and has been removed from training and match selection as a precaution. We are hopeful he will return to training in the second week of the tour.”
