In what can be termed as concerning news, veteran Indian pacer, Ashish Nehra will undergo a knee surgery soon. The pacer injured his knee while representing Sunrisers Hyderabad in the ongoing edition of the IPL. As per sources close to the BCCI, Nehra’s knee surgery will take place in London soon. The operation will be done by Dr. Andrew Williams, an orthopedic specialist based in London.

Nehra’s career got a new lease of life earlier this year when the pacer was chosen for India’s T20 squad for the tour of Australia. The veteran pacer had a fantastic outing Down Under as he was among the wickets and struck at the right moments. Nehra’s purple patch was evident during the home series against Sri Lanka, and the T20 Asia Cup which followed. The pacer was crucial behind India’s dominating outing in Bangladesh, where the men in blue won the Asia Cup.

Nehra worked well as a mentor to the budding Indian bowlers in the World T20, as he was often witnessed advising the Indian bowlers during the tournament. With Nehra already over 37 years of age, a serious injury at this point could well mean an end to his illustrious career.

“BCCI medical team confirms that India medium pacer, Ashish Nehra, injured his right knee during the VIVO Indian Premier League 2016. Assessment and investigation by BCCI medical staff revealed Nehra sustained a high-grade tendon injury and was recommended to consult Dr. Andrew Williams, an orthopaedic specialist in London. Post consultation, Dr. Williams has advised surgery on his right knee, which will take place shortly,” a statement from the BCCI revealed.
