Sussex expect to see Phil Salt back in action at the end of next month.

The star batsman has been told he has a broken bone in his right foot.

Salt is sitting out the LV= Insurance County Championship match away to Glamorgan, which started yesterday.

He underwent a scan after hurting his foot when knocked off his bicycle ahead of the new season.

Sussex have revealed he will spend at least two weeks in a protective boot before intensifying his rehabilitation with an aim of returning to competitive cricket by the end of May.

That timetable would appear to rule him out of the first six Championship fixtures of the season.

But it would ensure he is back in action in time for the Vitality Blast.

Salt is an important run-scorer in all competitions and has also attracted the attention of England selectors with a view to white-ball formats.

Strike bowler Ollie Robinson, who is close to a Test match debut, took 4-50 in Cardiff yesterday.

Young spinner Jack Carson tidied up the tail with 3-14 as Glamorgan were bowled out for 285.
