Head coach Stuart Law told Middlesex’s official website: “This is horrible news for Toby. He is having no luck with injury at all.

“It is really unfortunate to lose a player of Toby’s ability and presence both on and off the field.

“We hope the post-surgery news is positive but his absence does create opportunities for other players to shine. We all wish him a speedy recovery.”
