Luke Wright is contemplating drastic action to try and cure a long-standing injury.

The Sussex all-rounder may have a rib removed after the problem flared up again during the opening Championship match of the season against Kent three weeks ago.

Wright returned to action in the friendly against Cardiff UCCE at Hove yesterday and made 93.

He revealed: "Most people can get four fingers in the gap between the top of their hip and their rib but I can only get one.

"The problem flares up when they bang against each other and I bruise my rib.

"I will sit down with our physio (Stuart Osborne) at the end of the season.

Having a rib removed is an option but I think I will probably just have to manage the injury.

"The last time I did it was two years ago so the good thing this time was that we knew how to look after it and I have only been out for three weeks."

The 22-year-old is hoping to bowl later in the match and make himself available for Sussex's FP Trophy game against Glamorgan tomorrow Wright added: "It was really frustrating to pick up the injury so soon in the season. I was bowling well in that Kent game, had just taken a catch and felt good.

"I'm starting the game as a batsman but if I feel okay hopefully I can have a bowl and put myself in the frame for Friday."

Skipper Chris Adams hopes to be fit to face Glamorgan after returning to training yesterday.

Instead ofleading his side against Gloucestershire on Monday, Adams spent the day in his Bristol hotel bedroom after going down with a sickness bug.

He said: "I hit some balls yesterday but felt pretty weak afterwards. But hopefully I should feel stronger today and even if I'm only 50 per cent I will probably play tomorrow.

"I felt fine when I got to Bristol on Sunday but at 4am on Monday I was violently ill.

"I thought it was food poisoning but two or three of our friends have had similar symptoms in the last week and I have picked up the bug."

Rana Naved, Jason Lewry and Mike Yardy are definitely out and Andrew Hodd had a blood test yesterday after going down with a virus.

Adams added: "The game is really testing us at the moment but in terms of effort and preparation I don't think the squad can do anymore."

The second day of the friendly against Cardiff UCCE at Hove was washed out.

Weather permitting, Sussex will to resume on Thursday on 225-4 with Michael Thornely 50 not out and Ollie Rayner unbeaten on 23.
