Porter to miss remainder of Royal London Cup


Essex paceman Jamie Porter is set to miss the remainder of the Royal London Cup campaign after suffering a side strain during the match against Middlesex last Sunday.

The 28-year-old had made a bright start to the 50-over competition, taking 2 wickets with an economy of just 3.31.

He said: “I’m disappointed to be out injured as I felt I had begun the Royal London Cup well, but I guess that’s part of being a sportsman.

“The lads have made a good start in the 50-over competition and I’ll now be cheering them on from the sides, doing everything I can to get fit and get back out on the field as soon as possible.”
