Hyatt may need surgery for broken nose

Kingston, Jamaica - Discarded national opener, Danza Hyatt, is awaiting doctor's instructions to find out whether or not he will require surgery on his broken nose.
Hyatt sustained the injury on Saturday, while participating in Jamaica's final inter-squad practice match at Sabina Park.
He was hit through his helmet after mistiming a short ball from all-rounder André Russell off the second delivery he faced.
Hyatt was representing Nikita Miller XI, who played to a bad light-affected no-result with David Bernard Jr XI.
"I was taken to the University Hospital, where I saw a specialist. He examined me and told me that my nose was broken," said Hyatt.
"I was then released and told to return on Tuesday, when another assessment will be made to determine what should be the next move."
The 30-year-old, who was dropped from Jamaica's Super50 14-member squad recently, also said he has been experiencing pain in other areas of his face.
"The ball actually hit me between my nose and eye, which is at the moment swollen," he said.
Hyatt was one of four players who were named as reserves for the Super50.
The list has, however, been reduced to three after young opener Kennar Lewis was drafted last Friday as a replacement for the injured Chris Gayle.
Jamaica are set to fly out tomorrow for Trinidad and Tobago, where they will play Windward Islands in the opening fixture of the Super50 on Thursday.
