England's Twenty20 World Cup campaign has hit a serious setback after wicketkeeper Matt Prior was hurt in the nets today.
Prior was taken to a nearby hospital for scans after he injured his right thumb during a practice session.
He will be reassessed tomorrow to decide whether he will be able to play against the Kiwis at Durban. If not England will be face a sizeable problem, having not named a backup wicketkeeper in their squad for the World Cup.Discuss this news item in the Cricket Web Forums
