More injury woe for Metters
Warwickshire will continue to be without Chris Metters for a lengthy period after the left-arm spinner was forced to undergo further shoulder surgery.
Metters, 22, impressed after breaking into Warwickshire’s team in 2011, claiming 29 first-class wickets at an average of 24.
However, he was unable to feature last year due to injury and has now suffered a recurrence of the same shoulder problem.
Warwickshire director of cricket Dougie Brown told the club’s official website: “It’s obviously disappointing for Chris as he had been training really well over recent months.
“We will establish a further rehabilitation programme but initially he will need a period of rest before starting the hard work necessary to regain full fitness.”
