Tongue on the road to recovery for Worcestershire

13th June 2018, 17:44 by Simon Barlow

Worcestershire are hoping to have bowler Josh Tongue back in action this season after he began his rehabilitation.

The 20-year-old suffered a metatarsal injury on his left foot and it was initially feared that could spell the end of his campaign.

However, he started his rehabilitation programme on Tuesday and Worcestershire expect him to play some part before the season is out.

Worcestershire coach Kevin Sharp is hoping to have the pace bowler available for their final six County Championship fixtures.

Sharp said: “It is a blow to lose Josh who showed last season how much potential he has got and he was adjusting nicely to the demands of Division One cricket.

“But there is nothing you can do about injuries. We just have to get on with it and hope we will have Josh back for the final part of the season and those final six Championship matches which is still a lot of cricket.”
