Vaas Discharged From Hospital

Chaminda Vaas has left hospital after colliding with the advertising boards while fielding for Middlesex. There was a 27-minute delay during the Crusaders' nine-wicket defeat by Essex in the Friends Provident Trophy at Chelmsford after Vaas collided with the hoardings trying to catch England all-rounder Ravi Bopara. The 33-year-old was admitted to Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford after leaving the field on a stretcher. He was assessed by a consultant before being released at around 7.30pm. Middlesex coach Richard Pybus told BBC Online: ``Chaminda unfortunately fell back into the boards and hit his head. ``He's been taken to do some neurological tests. He was conscious and could feel his fingers and feet. You've got to be very careful with an injury like this.''
