Warwickshire's Darren Maddy suffers nasty facial injury

Injury-hit Maddy played just two Championship games in 2009

Darren Maddy may have to undergo an operation after sustaining a "nasty" facial injury on Warwickshire's pre-season trip to Bloemfontein.

The former Bears captain suffered the injury while batting in a net session.

It is anticipated that he will require an operation to repair the damage - and he will see a consultant on Thursday.

"It is always nasty to see a player suffer a facial blow but I am confident that he will be back playing as soon as he can," said Bears coach Ashley Giles.

"It is a blow for Madds after missing last summer with his knee.

"But, after consultation with the medical staff out here, with his determination, we are positive that he will make a quick and speedy recovery."

Maddy played just two County Championship matches and a Friends Provident Trophy game in 2009 after injuring his knee last April.
