Shiv Thakor: Leicestershire all-rounder to miss start of season
Leicestershire all-rounder Shiv Thakor will miss the first three months of the county season after having to undergo a second operation on a broken finger.
He was injured on the England Under-19 tour of South Africa in January 2013, but played through the domestic season.
The 20-year-old had surgery over the winter, but the bone failed to reset properly, forcing a second operation.
Director of cricket Phil Whitticase said: "We're really disappointed but it is important the injury is sorted out."
