Experienced left-arm spinner Gary Keedy will miss the start of Lancashire's season after he fractured his collarbone in a pre-season match.
The club confirmed that he fell awkwardly during Lancashire's two-day friendly against Durham, fracturing his right collarbone in the process.
He will undergo surgery, after which the club will know how long he is likely to be out of action for.
Keedy is a veteran of 187 first-class matches, 68 one-day games and 43 Twenty20 matches having started his career with Yorkshire in 1994.
