Durham will have to do without Paul Collingwood for the group stages of this season's Friends Life t20 due to a broken hand.

The former England batsman suffered the injury to his right hand in last week's LV= County Championship clash with Warwickshire at Chester-le-Street.

A statement on the county's website read: "Following an MRI scan on Monday, Durham CCC can confirm that Paul Collingwood has suffered an undisplaced fracture of his second metacarpal.

"It is anticipated that the recovery time for this injury is four to five weeks."
