Josh Poysden will no longer travel to Mumbai due to a fractured finger.

The spinner, who has spent much of the winter playing for Burnside in New Zealand, was assessed by Yorkshire’s medical team on Thursday night.

Speaking about the decision to rest Poysden, Yorkshire’s First XI Coach Andrew Gale said: “Josh was assessed by the Club’s physio last night and it was determined that he has a fractured finger.

“The good news is that this won’t require any surgery, but we believe that it would be beneficial for Josh get more rest to ensure that he is ready to go in April.

“We really feel for Josh as he has been so unlucky with injuries in recent times. Hopefully, this is the end of them, and he can look forward and concentrate on an injury free season in 2020.”

All-rounder Tom Loten will replace Poysden in the 19-man squad.
