Taranaki and Central Districts Stags cricketer William Young expects to be batting again inside three weeks.
Young suffered a broken finger when attempting to catch a ball at a Stags training session in Dunedin.
A wire inserted in the finger was removed last Friday to allow Young to begin his rehabilitation.
"Now I've just got to get the finger moving properly again," Young said.
"If things work out, I'm looking at getting back (with CD) in three weeks."
