Yorkshire all-rounder Richard Pyrah will be out of action for up to two months after suffering a hand injury.

Pyrah, 29, sustained the injury while fielding during the second day of Yorkshire's County Championship clash against Kent at Headingley.

An X-ray showed he had broken a bone in his left hand and he is expected to be sidelined for up to eight weeks.

"Broke my hand in the field today. I'm totally gutted, but I will be back strong," Pyrah said on Twitter.external-link
