Jamie Overton will be missing from the Somerset scene for the rest of the season after suffering a lower back injury.

The 22 year old was forced to leave the field midway through an over during the Specsavers County Championship match against Middlesex last week after which he took no further part in the game.

Subsequent scans and tests have revealed that Jamie has suffered a stress fracture of the back as a result of which he will miss the remainder of the 2016 season.
