Tahir suffers a fracture

2011-03-09 13:08

The Proteas suffered their first injury setback of the ICC cricket World Cup campaign when leg spinner Imran Tahir was confirmed to have suffered an undisplaced fracture in his left thumb.

“Imran injured himself during the game against England while attempting a caught and bowled, which dismissed Jonathan Trott,” said Proteas’ manager Mohammed Moosajee.

“The X-ray that was done today revealed a small undisplaced fracture in his left thumb.

The images have been sent home to Cricket South Africa’s medical committee and we are waiting for the hand specialist, Dr Mike Solomons, to give us an opinion.

“His thumb has been splintered and immobilised, and a decision on what happens further will be made in the next two days.”
