Yorkshire are waiting to hear if batsman Aaron Finch's arrival will be delayed after he was injured during an Indian Premier League match.

The Mumbai Indians player, 28, was forced to retire hurt after pulling his hamstring while going for a single against Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday.

Finch is set to play for the Division One champions after the end of the IPL.

But the Australian tweeted that scans revealed damage that is likely to rule him out for the rest of the tournament.
