Yorkshire spinner Adil Rashid has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to a chronic shoulder injury.

Rashid underwent a scan on Tuesday and will now take some time out to rehabilitate his shoulder under England's medical team.

The 31-year-old, who helped England win the World Cup last month, told Yorkshireccc.com: "The aim was to come back after the World Cup and play for Yorkshire. I enjoy playing for Yorkshire, but it just wasn't meant to be."

Rashid added: "I'm genuinely disappointed not to be playing for Yorkshire, but hopefully I can do next year now.

"When I can play, I'll play. I just wasn't anywhere near fit enough to play. People may have other views, but I just can't play. Any other talk is nonsense.

"I enjoy playing cricket and enjoy playing for Yorkshire, but this year it wasn't possible with how the shoulder was.

"My main aim is to get my shoulder fit, strong and powerful ahead of the winter. I'll be in the gym, keeping fit and rehabbing my shoulder. Hopefully, once I get through that period I can just continue playing cricket."
