Nottinghamshire seamer Brett Hutton has been ruled out for "a number of months" after suffering an Achilles injury.

The 31-year-old, who was the County Championship's leading wicket-taker in 2023 with 62 scalps, was hurt in Nottinghamshire’s drawn match with Somerset in April.

He missed the following four-day fixture against Warwickshire, and scans have since revealed the extent of the injury.

Hutton, who was also Notts' top wicket-taker in the One-Day Cup in 2022 and 2023, signed a two-year contract extension with the county in February.
