Glamorgan batsman Michael Powell is recovering in intensive care after complications following major surgery.

The 30-year-old has had a rib removed to ease pressure on an artery which had led to a blood clot.

Problems meant Powell had to undergo four operations in total, meaning he was admitted to the intensive care unit at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.

Glamorgan wicket-keeper Mark Wallace said: “It was quite worrying for a few days but things are looking good which is excellent news.

“He has had a tough time being in intensive care. It looks like he is on the mend now.”

Glamorgan are hoping Powell will be moved from intensive care to a ward on Friday as his condition improves.

Although it has not been confirmed it is unlikely Powell will play again this season.
