Wayne Parnell has passed a late fitness test ahead of Kent’s One Day Cup match at home to Sussex on Friday.
This follows a heart scare on Tuesday during Kent’s One Day Cup match with Somerset in which the Proteas paceman left the field as a precaution.
The 27-year-old, who has a history of heart-related problems, was taken to a cardiologist after experiencing pain in his chest playing for Kent against Somerset on Tuesday.
Parnell took to Twitter on Thursday to update his fans on his fitness.
Seen the specialist in London, the ol ticker is perfectly normal and working well, thanks for the support and prayers. Peace and Love pic.twitter.com/nLQ4O58UCF
