Nottinghamshire’s Chris Nash has begun his return from a shoulder injury he suffered during the opening T20 Blast game against Birmingham Bears. 

The Outlaws opener has returned to the nets after damaging his right acromioclavicular joint from an awkward landing following an attempted catch. 

However, Nash remains unavailable for the Outlaws T20 fixtures against Lancashire Lightning (Friday July 27) and Durham Jets (Saturday July 28) and will target a return in the latter stages of the T20 tournament. 

Head Coach Peter Moores provided an update on Nash’s recovery. 

“He tried hard to get fit for the Surrey game and if he had played this game he would’ve been restricted as a fielder, but we knew that – the question was would he have been restricted as a batter,” he said. 

“He had a good hit the day before the game and he was fine on the front foot but anything short around his chest, his shoulder was still sore so he’s probably still a bit of time off. 

“To be fair to (physio) James Pipe and him they’re doing the rehab work and we just have to take it day by day.”
