Clarke to have surgery today

Australia cricket captain Michael Clarke, who fears he may never play again due to recurring injuries, will undergo surgery on his right hamstring on Tuesday. “Michael was assessed by a surgeon in Melbourne early this evening and will be undergoing surgery on Tuesday,” Australia team doctor Peter Brukner said in a statement.

“Whilst surgery is not always required with hamstring injuries, Michael has substantial damage to a key part of the hamstring tendon and it was felt the best course of action was to surgically repair the damaged area. His recovery and the timing of his return to play will be dependent on the surgeon’s advice and how well he recovers in the coming weeks,” Brukner added. Clarke has been ruled out of the three remaining Tests of the ongoing series against India, raising serious doubts over his participation in the World Cup to be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand next year.
