County Championship 2021 – Phil Salt out ruled out until end of May after breaking foot in cycling accident


Batter should be fit in time for T20 Blast campaign as he works on rehab alongside Archer

Phil Salt, the Sussex batsman, has been ruled out until the end of May due to a cycling injury.

Sussex announced on Thursday that Salt had broken a bone in his right foot, which was confirmed after a visit to a specialist. He suffered the injury last month after a collision while riding his bike, and will miss Sussex’s next four County Championship fixtures at least.

A club statement said he would spend at least two more weeks wearing a protective boot, before “intensifying his rehabilitation with an aim of returning to competitive cricket by the end of May”. Salt is currently in rehab at Hove alongside Jofra Archer, who returned to light training this week after receiving the all-clear from his medical consultant.
