Katich misses Hants clash with head injury
Simon Katich was taken to hospital after being struck on the head while preparing for Hampshire's LV County Championship match with Lancashire this morning.
The former Hampshire and Australia batsman, who was wearing a helmet, was hit on the temple during a net session at The Ageas Bowl and was taken to Southampton General in a taxi.
Lancashire head coach Peter Moores said: "It was a nasty one. The ball went through the grille and hit him around the temple area. He was pretty groggy so we've taken him to hospital to get him checked over."
Katich, who played for Hampshire from 2003-05 and throughout last season, was discharged following tests this afternoon, having been replaced in the Lancashire side by Andrew Agathangelou.
