Worcestershire have received positive news about the fitness of middle-order batter Jack Haynes.

During last week’s Vitality Blast encounter with Leicestershire Foxes, Haynes suffered a knee injury when fielding a ball close to the boundary.

But a scan has revealed only strained ligaments, and there is a possibility he will be available for the LV=Insurance County Championship match with Glamorgan at New Road beginning on Sunday (June 26).

Haynes is Worcestershire’s leading scorer in Championship cricket this summer, with 594 runs in 11 innings at an average of 66.00.

Worcestershire Head Coach, Alex Gidman, confirmed: “The good news regarding Jack is that there is no serious damage to his knee.

“He had a scan, and he has strained ligaments in his knee, but they are not torn or anything like that, which is positive.

“We are trying to push things and see if he is available for the weekend, which at the moment is still 50-50.”

Worcester-born Haynes scored three first class centuries in successive games against Durham, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.

He was voted the Worcestershire County Cricket Supporters’ Association Player Of The Month for May.
