Injury means Matt's Somerset season is over

Matt Renshaw suffered a hand injury in the recent Specsavers County Championship match against Surrey at Guildford and as a result he will be returning home sooner than originally planned.

The 22-year-old’s season with Somerset is therefore now at an end.

Matt has been in outstanding form for the County this season, scoring over 500 Championship runs at an average of 51.30 and as Head Coach, Jason Kerr explains, it is a big blow. “Matt sustained a fracture on the top of his finger,” he said. “After speaking with Cricket Australia it has been agreed that he will return to Australia sooner rather than later. Sadly for us that means it is the end of his time with Somerset this season.

“It’s a huge blow to us because he has been brilliant both on and off the field. He fitted into the dressing room very well and a player of that calibre is going to be missed.

“However, it does create an opportunity for somebody else to come in and step up, so from that point of view it’s quite exciting.”
