Warwickshire bowler Boyd Rankin will miss the rest of the season after fracturing his leg in training.
Rankin, 32, fractured his left tibia and subsequent scans have revealed that he will miss Warwickshire’s final matches as well as Ireland’s upcoming fixtures against Pakistan, Hong Kong, South Africa and Australia.
The fast bowler represented England in one Test match and has made 46 ODI appearances in total having restored his allegiance to Ireland last year.
Dougie Brown, Warwickshire’s director of cricket, said: “It’s extremely frustrating to lose Boyd during such a key point in the season. He will now go through a rehabilitation programme with our medical team to rest, strengthen and be ready for our 2017 pre-season schedule.”
