As the rest of the afternoon went on I started to feel worse so I went off to hospital. I had a CT scan in hospital and it showed that I fractured my skull and had some internal bleeding in my head that hadn't gone on to my brain." <p></p> <p></p> I had some slight bruising on my brain and because of this I got moved to the neurology ward at Leeds General Infirmary and had observations for the next 36 hours. <p></p> <p></p> There were some concerning moments and when the results of the CT scan came through, if my condition deteriorated any more, there was a possibility of having surgery or a procedure which involved inserting a needle into my brain to check on the bleeding. I recovered well so obviously that was never explored. <p></p> <p></p> I was discharged from hospital yesterday having passed all the observations. The consultant told me I would suffer concussion symptoms for the next six weeks and that I need to be really careful to avoid a double impact for the next three months until it s fully healed." <p></p> <p></p>Coach Andrew Gale described it as a "freak accident". <p></p> <p></p>"I'm gutted for the lad," he said. "He has worked hard and his season has revolved around his participation in the T20 campaign and he would have been a big asset to us."
