Notts CCC bowler out for rest of season

Nottinghamshire bowler Luke Fletcher has been ruled out for the rest of the season after being hit on the head with a cricket ball.

It happened during the club's T20 match against Birmingham Bears at Edgaston on Saturday when the batsman smashed the ball straight back at him.

He was taken to hospital but was released on Sunday.

Medics said he was lucky to have escaped a more serious injury.
