Yorkshire wicket-keeper Harry Duke has joined Essex on a two-week loan deal.

Duke, 22, cannot getting into Yorkshire's red-ball side ahead of Jonny Tattersall at present, but he will get the opportunity to play for Essex due to their current injury crisis.

He will be in the team for their Vitality County Championship Division One matches away to Durham and Somerset, as their only recognised keeper who is fit and available.

Essex's two first-team wicketkeepers, Michael Pepper and Adam Rossington, are both currently suffering from injuries.

And while Jordan Cox can normally done the gloves if necessary, he suffered a finger injury during the Hundred last year, meaning he is unable to undertake that role at the moment.

Yorkshire stalwart Anthony McGrath is Essex's head coach, so Duke is sure to feel right at home, as he looks to help his temporary side maintain their place at the top of the division, which they currently lead by eight points from Surrey.

As for Yorkshire, they sit second-bottom of Division Two as it stands, but a home win over Derbyshire this week would see them shoot up the table.

Test stars Harry Brook, Joe Root and Shan Masood are all available to play in that four-day encounter, which gets underway at Headingley tomorrow morning.

The 13-man squad for the game is as follows:
