Australia opening batsman Matthew Hayden is certain he will be fit for the first Ashes Test despite being attacked by a dog while jogging.
Hayden broke a finger in a state match last weekend
Hayden suffered a 5cm-long ankle wound in what he called a "vicious attack". It came a week after he broke a finger.
"The hand injury would have kept me out for longer than this one," he said.
"I was was out for a leisurely run. You are always a bit shocked by that sort of thing but I was more disappointed than anything."
Queenslander Hayden, who was left out of the one-day squad, broke a finger taking a catch in last weekend's state match against Tasmania.
The first Ashes Test starts in his home town of Brisbane on 23 November.
