Team manager Giles White is glad that spinner Danny Briggs has recovered from injury.
Hampsire’s Danny Briggs injured his ankle whilst on England’s tour of Australia before Christmas.
Briggs played in the one day series against Pakistan before his injury. The spinner took two wickets for 39 runs in the match and averaged an impressive 19.50.
Despite being new to the England set-up the Hampshire man has a lot of experience at county level. He has has already taken 118 first-class wickets and will be an important player for the county again this season.
The CB40 champions were worried that the ankle injury would keep Briggs out for longer, but the 21-year-old has turned out against Warwickshire in a two day practice match in Barbados this week – taking figures of 1-12.
Hampshire will be pleased to see Briggs playing again as the man from the Isle of Wight was key to their CB40 and T20 championship wins last season.
Team manager Giles White is expecting the spinner to be fit for the start of the county championship season in April.
“He’s just coming back form an injury and is fit and well and got through it and is looking forward to bowling more over the weekend,” White told the BBC.
“We expect him to take a full part in the rest of the tour and to lead up to our first game when we get back.”
The next game of the tour is Twenty20 match against Yorkshire on Saturday, that Briggs is expected to play in.
