Australia's Adam Voges was taken to hospital following a concussion scare after the Middlesex captain collapsed during his side's County Championship match against Hampshire on Sunday.
Voges was struck on the back of the head by a ball lobbed by sub fielder Ollie Rayner and which was missed by wicketkeeper John Simpson after a boundary was hit by Hampshire's Michael Carberry at Southampton.
The 36-year-old fell straight to the floor before being helped off the pitch by two physios and was subsequently taken to hospital with a suspected concussion as his participation in the game looks to have ended.
Middlesex director of cricket Angus Fraser said: "The feeling from the physio Peter Waxman is that it is a concussion but that will be shown up later.
"It was a freak injury but you wonder why when a cricket ball which gets thrown around the field as much as it does it doesn't happen as often. A cricket ball is a hard thing.
