Former West Indies bowler Fidel Edwards suffered a fractured ankle in a football warm-up while playing for Hampshire in the County Championship.
The quick played no part in the fourth and final day of Hampshire's season opener against Yorkshire in Leeds after withdrawing ahead of play.
And it was later revealed that Edwards will be sidelined for a considerable amount of time after suffering a nasty injury.
Edwards posted on Instagram: "Yesterday I broke my leg and today the process of healing starts both mentally and physically.
"I would like to say thanks to all the doctors and staff at #leedsgeneralinfirmary for their help.
"It's going to be tough but through pray and determination I'll be back in no time God is good and my health is in his hands."
