Injury Update: Tom Abell

Somerset’s Tom Abell is set for a spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury in pre-season.

Head Coach, Jason Kerr has the latest: “Unfortunately, as many people would have seen earlier in the week, Tom picked up an injury whilst batting against University of Exeter in our pre-season match. He felt some discomfort whilst running between the wickets, so he came off the field immediately as a precaution.

“He has since had a scan and that has confirmed that there is a tear in the hamstring. At present we’re not quite able to determine the extent of the tear so it’s difficult to put a timeframe on it but we will certainly be looking at a few weeks.

“He will be working closely with our Science & Medicine Team to plan and activate a recuperation and rehabilitation schedule to ensure that he is fully fit before returning to First Team action.

“Obviously, it’s disappointing and frustrating for Tom and we’ll be doing everything that we can to support him through his recovery.”
