Dom Sibley ruled out for at least two Championship fixtures with broken finger

Dom Sibley has been ruled out of Warwickshire’s next two County Championship matches after sustaining a broken finger at Trent Bridge last week.

Sibley, the England opening batter, broke the finger – the middle one on his right hand – when dropping a chance in the slip cordon. Although he was padded up and prepared to come in towards the end of a nail-biter against Nottinghamshire, he did not bat in the match.

The news means he will not be available for this week’s top-of-the-table contest between against Essex at Edgbaston or next week’s fixture against Durham.
