Hampshire have confirmed fast bowler Fidel Edwards suffered a broken ankle when he injured himself in warm-ups on the final morning of their Specsavers County Championship Division One match against Yorkshire at Headingley.

It is not yet known how long the injury will keep Edwards out for a club who have a raft of players on the sidelines at the start of the season - including newly-signed England seamer Reece Topley, who broke his hand on his Hampshire debut.

In a statement on the county's website, Hampshire confirmed Edwards had broken his right ankle, and will find out the prognosis after a further consultation.

"Fidel will see a specialist today (Thursday 21 April), which will help determine the predicted length of time that he will be out of action for," it read.

Edwards, who described his injury as a 'broken leg' in an Instagram post from hospital, suffered the injury while playing football on the Headingley outfield.

Hampshire coach Dale Benkenstein told the Southern Daily Echo: "We were only 45 seconds away from the end of the (football) game when Fidel went to kick the ball.

"I was just about to get the mitts on for fielding practice when his foot got stuck in the turf, and all his weight went over on it.

"There was no one near him. It was a really freakish fall, and there was a loud crack."
