Shane Warne will visit hospital on Thursday after being hit by a bouncer in the Pro40 match at the Rose Bowl against Worcestershire.

Warne had to have go to hospital for stitches to his forehead and later complained of a headache.

His team were all out for 131 in 36.1 overs with Dominic Thornley on 60.

In reply, Worcestershire opener Lou Vincent made 32 before the rain arrived to help them to a 24-run win by the Duckworth-Lewis method.

Hampshire manager Paul Terry said Warne would not miss any cricket.

Terry said: "Shane has a bit of a headache and a bit of blurry vision but I don't think it is anything to worry about."

Warne, batting at three for Hampshire, had reached 13 off seven balls when he top-edged an attempted pull between his visor and the grille of his helmet.

He later re-appeared with a swollen right eye but added just one run to his score before edging Zaheer Khan behind.

As rain clouds formed, Worcestershire made a positive start to their innings although they soon lost Stephen Moore and Vikram Solanki.

But Vincent helped guide them to a good position to leave them at the top of the table with Gloucestershire and favourites to go up with only one fixture remaining.
