MCC Fast bowler Steve Kirby has been ruled out of the remainder of the Champion County match between against Nottinghamshire CCC in Abu Dhabi due to injury.

Kirby experienced some pain following a blow to his left foot while he was batting in MCC’s first innings, and subsequent discomfort during the warm-up on day two has resulted in the decision to withdraw him from the rest of the match as a precautionary measure.  

Kirby took 5-29 on the first day to help bowl out Notts for 108.

MCC Young Cricketer Paul Muchall will replace Kirby in the MCC team for the Emirates Airline Twenty20 Trophy.
