Yorkshire off-spinner Azeem Rafiq has been ruled out for the next six weeks because of a knee injury.

The 22-year-old played in the defeat by Sussex in the opening Championship match of the season and in last week's friendly against Lancashire.

"I'm going to work hard on my rehab with the medical team and hope to be back in action early June," he told the club website.

Adil Rashid is likely to replace him for this week's match against Durham.
