Overseas batsman Shaun Marsh has been ruled out for the rest of the 2018 County season.
Marsh injured his shoulder while fielding on Sunday in Glamorgan’s defeat to Sussex Sharks.
He went for a scan on Monday and it revealed he has ligament damage and disruption in his AC joint.
Glamorgan Physiotherapist Mark Rausa has been in contact with the Cricket Australia medical team since the injury and they have requested Marsh to return home tomorrow for further assessment.
Meanwhile, fast bowler Marchant de Lange is also likely to miss the Vitality Blast competition.
De Lange has been suffering from a hamstring injury since Glamorgan’s Royal London One-Day Cup match against Middlesex. After making some good initial progress he felt his hamstring again during a running drill and scans revealed a recurrence of the injury.
“Losing Marchant for the rest of the competition and in Shaun’s case, the season, is a big blow,” said Director of Cricket, Hugh Morris.
“Marchant was one of our best bowlers in the T20 competition last year and is an inspirational character in the dressing room, however we have a strong bowling line-up and I’m sure we will be able to fill that gap with the players we have available.
“As a proven international batsman, Shaun will leave a big hole at the top of the order and we are currently considering our options and are looking at options for replacing him for the rest of the season.”
