Kyle Hogg Ruled Out Of Lancashire's Opening Games

Lancashire seam bowler Kyle Hogg has been ruled out of the start of Lancashire's season after breaking a finger in pre-season training.

Hogg, who had spells on loan to Nottinghamshire and Worcestershire last season, suffered the injury during fielding practice and is expected to be out for the next four to five weeks with a broken metacarpal in his right hand.

The blow comes after Hogg had made a good start to the pre-season, taking four for 29 in a friendly against Essex.

Lancashire start their season on April 16th with an LV County Championship match against Surrey at The Brit Oval.
