No surgery for SymondsFebruary 18th, 2009 - 2:47 pm ICT by IANS
Sydney, Feb 18(IANS) Troubled Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds won’t be needing another surgery on his right knee.
Symonds underwent a knee surgery on New Year’s Eve and the injury flared up again this week. He visited a Melbourne specialist Tuesday after spending some time off the field in Queensland’s 19-run Shield loss to South Africa at the Adelaide Oval this week.
It was feared that the 33-year-old all-rounder might have to undergo another operation on the same knee, but the specialist gave him a green signal and said that he could be available for Sunday’s Ford Ranger Cup final against Victoria.
“Andrew has pinched inflamed tissue in the joint of his right knee,” Cricket Australia doctor Trefor James said. “If the speed of his recovery continues, he may be available for selection in the Ford Ranger Cup final this Sunday.”
