Right after his call up for the England Test squad Zafar Ansari suffered an open dislocation of his left thumb against Lancashire at Old Trafford and was sent to the hospital.

Fielding at cover point, Ansari dropped a very difficult catch off Lancashire’s Ashwell Prince and immediately gestured for assistance from the dressing room. He left the field holding a bandage to his left hand and soon went to the hospital.

“It didn’t look good. He’s gone off to the hospital to see a hand, a specialist. It’s his left thumb and he was in quite a bit of pain,” Stewart said. “Fingers crossed for him but seeing him in the dressing room it’s certainly a concern.

“Obviously with the announcement this morning he was in a great place. He’s earned that right, and he offers England something they haven’t got. If he gets in that environment I think England will be very impressed with him. Let’s not speculate now. Hopefully, we’ll get some news sooner rather than later.”

Ansari along with Alex Hales, Adil Rashid are the uncapped players who have been called up for the England squad which tours UAE on September 30th. James Taylor has been called up for the Test squad while Gary Ballance has been  dropped from the squad.

Surrey Cricket added that Ansari’s injury would be “reviewed over the next couple of days”.
