Ishant Sharma holdup surgery to next year

Posted by Admin On 9:37 AM

Speedster Ishant Sharma will postpone his ankle surgery until the end of India's tour of Australia early next year. Sharma was ruled out of the England-India ODI series after he sustained a ligament injury to his left ankle during the third Test at Edgbaston.
I am going to the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore, where I'll stay for a week or 10 days to experience rehab and seek a proper schedule. At the instant, I've been told to do strengthening exercises.
I have a ligament tear in my left foot, and there is also a bone impingement in my left ankle. Surgery is the only way out. But if I undergo that now, my foot will be in splash for about three months and the action in all could take about 6-8 months,the 22-year old bowler added.
Once called by Steve Waugh as the next big thing in Indian cricket, Ishant lead India's attack in England but his team failed to live up to the expectations after his senior bowling partner Zaheer Khan was ruled out due to an injury.
You can't say our morale went down. We were always in the game. But if a bowler with 10 years of experience isn't there, it affects the performance. We had England on the ropes in the second innings at Lord's, and if Zaheer was there and had taken a couple of wickets, the result could have been different,Sharma reflected on the npower Test series.
Bowling in different venues in different circumstances teaches you a lot. In India, you know that after the initial burst, you have to wait for the third or fourth day to get something like reverse swing. In England, if the sun is out and there is no moisture on the track, it gets really very flat and that makes it tough to bowl on,Sharma said. However, Ishant's choice to put off his ankle surgery is sure to raise many eyebrows especially after what happened with Zaheer Khan on the England tour.
