Injury-plagued Somerset bowler Ben Phillips is set for another spell on the sidelines.

The 33-year-old suffered a hamstring problem during Somerset's championship victory over Kent, much to the frustration of captain Justin Langer.

"We are not sure yet quite how bad an injury it is but Ben could be out for a while," Langer told the club website.

A pre-season chest injury caused former Northamptonshire seamer Phillips to miss the whole of last campaign.
