Henriques returns after horrific jaw injury

Australia

Australia cricketer Moises Henriques made his return to the field on Sunday after the horrible collision with teammate Rory Burns when playing for Surrey against Sussex in a T20 match in June.

The collision, which caused the match to be abandoned in the 19th over as both players went to hospital, saw Henriques break his jaw when his head collided with Burns' knee.

The 28 year-old made his playing return when he captained a New South Wales City side against New South Wales Country.

Even though he had to have three surgeries to fix his jaw, the allrounder says while he still feels the after effects while he tries to sleep, it feels 100 per cent when he plays and trains.

Henriques told Fairfax: "I still have a little bit of vertigo but I don't get it when I'm playing or training, I only get it when I'm trying to sleep or lying down.

"All is okay at training, I'm training at 100% and I'm not holding back and I am definitely not scarred mentally. I'm definitely raring to go and can't wait until the start of the season.

"Getting through the first three surgeries and making sure it was healing properly and getting over the concussion was the priority."
