English batter Jonny Bairstow will be out from the cricketing action until next year, after the successful surgery of his broken leg. He is all set to miss the upcoming T20 World Cup as well as Test series against Pakistan in December.
Jhonny Bairstow played his last T20I match against South Africa at the end of July this year. He has scored 1337 runs in 60 T20I innings with an impactful strike rate of 136.42. English Wicketkeeper is very impactful player of the shortest format of the cricket for his team and his unavailability in the T20 World Cup is a major loss for England team.
On Monday, he gave information about his injury from his Instagram account. He wrote on Instagram, “Hello everyone…I am just writing this to update you on my injury and progress.
The actual injury was as such… a broken fibula in 3 places which required a plate; I dislocated my ankle, which meant I did my syndesmosis joint and lateral ligament along with a couple more bits. All in all, I have done a proper job on it!
Anyway… on the positive side, the operation went well, and I am now 3 weeks post-surgery, and my staples have been removed. It’s now all about preventing swelling and getting my ankle moving again. These next few weeks and months are the key to the recovery”.
It looks like a career threatening injury, and it is early to say when he will recover and start playing for his team. But he would not be coming on the ground before the end of the year.
“As for a time scale on return to play, I’m afraid it is too early to say; the first targets in mind are getting me back on my 2 feet again and making sure it’s right. One thing is for sure: I shall not be partaking in anything more during 2022… “I cannot wait for what 2023 holds!!” he added.
