Chris Nash scored 1,321 first-class runs for Sussex in 2009, but he is now unable to showcase that form in South Africa

The ECB has today announced that Sussex batsman Chris Nash is returning home from the England Performance Programme in South Africa after fracturing his right thumb in training.

Following advice from medical experts, Nash will undergo an operation next week and continue his rehabilitation in the United Kingdom under the guidance of the ECB medical team.

He will not be replaced in the squad, which is currently based in Pretoria and due to stay in South Africa until December 17.
