Derbyshire all-rounder Luis Reece will not play again this summer because he needs a shoulder operation.

The club say the 31-year-old has a “chronic condition” in his left shoulder, which has affected him for the last two seasons.

Reece may also require surgery on his right knee “later in the winter” and is not expected to fit to play again for “six to nine months”.

He has scored 6,385 runs and taken 161 wickets in all formats of the game.

“Luis is carrying two or three injuries at the moment and he needs to get some work done on them,” said external-linkhead of cricket Dave Houghton.

Reece only averages 13.58 with the bat in this summer’s…
