Surrey have announced all-rounder Moises Henriques has left hospital two days after his horrific collision with team-mate Rory Burns left him with a broken jaw in three places.

Both players were hospitalised after colliding with each other during the abandoned NatWest t20 Blast game against Sussex at Arundel.

While Burns, who was discharged on Monday, suffered lacerations above and below his left eye which required stitches, Henriques spent another 24 hours in hospital and will require further dental surgery.

Surrey said on Twitter: “More good news on the lads – Moises has now been released from hospital and will see a dental specialist tomorrow. He’s improving slowly!”

Henriques was struck by his team-mate’s knee before both fell face down, with medical staff from each clubs quickly out on to the pitch and they were soon joined by an off-duty doctor who had been watching the match.

Both needed oxygen treatment and three ambulances were called on to the pitch before they left the ground. The players were able to offer a thumbs-up to sympathetic spectators before being taken to St Richards’ Hospital in Chichester, where they underwent surgery overnight.

Henriques joined Surrey earlier this month to play in the domestic Twenty20 competition. The 28-year-old has played 13 times for Australia including three Test matches.

Opening batsman Burns, 24, joined the Surrey staff in 2009 and has been a regular member of their one-day team.
