Surrey's Rory Burns and Moises Henriques are both recovering well after the head clash which caused Sunday's T20 match against Sussex to be abandoned.

Fielding first in the Natwest T20 Blast match at Arundel Castle, Surrey had restricted Sussex to 141-7 in the penultimate over of their innings before the collision took place, leaving umpires Alex Wharf and Jeremy Lloyds with the easy decision to abandon the match. 

Both men had their eye on the ball, attempting a high catch to dismiss Sussexs' Steffan Piolet, when they both slid and collided with eachother.

The match was abandoned 40 minutes after the incident, with both players recieving treatment on the field before being taken to the nearby hospital for further checks.

The players were both knocked unconscious, with Burns suffering nasty cuts around his left eye, whilst Australian Henriques broke his jaw in three places which will require dental surgery. 

Surrey County Cricket Club released a statement on Sunday evening, in which they confirmed the duo "are in good spirits, and bearing up well."

Alec Stewart, the Surrey coach, was with the players overnight and thanked the medical staff and everybody at Sussex CCC for their treatment of the incident, before posting a photo of Burns looking cheerful in hospital. 

Stewart went on to say, "I would also like to thank all our fans and the wider cricketing family for their thoughts and messages. They are very much appreciated by the lads and everyone at the club."

Social media was full of well-wishes on Sunday evening, with teammates, coaches and supporters sending Burns and Henriques messages of positivity.

The match was Kevin Pietersen's final appearance for Surrey, before he jets off to the West Indies to take part in the Carribean Premier League which begins on Saturday June 20.
