Injury blow for Lewis.
Somerset Vitality Blast Captain, Lewis Gregory is facing a spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury.
The 27-year-old has suffered a foot problem and will definitely miss this weekend’s Vitality Blast matches against Surrey and Middlesex.
Somerset CCC Head of Science & Medicine, Jamie Thorpe said: “Lewis was experiencing some discomfort through his left foot, so we sent him for a scan. The subsequent imaging has revealed that he has suffered a stress injury to one of the bones.
“Therefore, the decision has been taken to protect the foot for a period of time in order to let it settle and become pain free. Lewis will then begin a gradual weight loading programme in order to help get him back on the field fully fit for Somerset County Cricket Club. Unfortunately, we don’t have a specific time frame for his recovery at this point.”
Head Coach, Jason Kerr said: “This is incredibly frustrating news for Lewis because he’s having an outstanding season. His contributions across all three formats have been exceptional and that has culminated in him receiving International recognition. It goes without saying that we want to see him back in a Somerset shirt again as soon as possible.”
Lewis has been in sparkling form all season for Somerset, taking 44 Specsavers County Championship wickets at an average of 13.89 whilst also scoring 363 runs at an average of 30.25. In Somerset’s successful Royal London One-Day Cup campaign he took 10 wickets and scored 287 runs, and in this years Vitality Blast he had already taken five wickets.Back to News
