Ambrose season in jeopardy
Warwickshire's trophy hopes have been hit by the news that wicketkeeper/batsman Tim Ambrose suffered a bizarre injury on Saturday.
The 29-year-old picked up the problem in strange circumstances during the Bears' CB40 semi-final victory over Lancashire, and now faces the possibility that his season is over.
The former England international has been an integral part of Warwickshire's bid for glory, playing his part in steering the Bears to the top of the County Championship table as well as to the Lord's showpiece against Hampshire.
Captain Jim Troughton is waiting on the results of a scan but is hopeful that the injury is not as bad as was first feared.
"He was sitting on the balcony and went to move his leg which was in a raised position," Troughton told BBC Coventry & Warwickshire.
"Hopefully it's not as bad as what he thinks it is.
"I'm desperate for him because he hasn't had a Lord's final and he really wanted to be there.
"Hopefully the scan will be positive but it's a hard one to swallow."
Richard Johnson, who had been on loan at Derbyshire, has been included in the Championship squad that takes on local rivals Worcestershire on Tuesday.
