Australia Skipper Michael Clarke’s hamstring surgery had given “the best output” possible, former great spinning legend Shane Warne said raising hopes the Australian captain will make the forthcoming World Cup on Wednesday.
On Saturday Michael Clarke badly tore his right hamstring during the 1st Test against India in Adelaide, a match he went into under an injury which cloud given his long history of back remonstrance.
He said after the match that he was unable to play the rest of the four match Test series against India and that injury could down his career. But Shane Warne said his future was looking quiet good after he underwent operation on Tuesday.
Shane Warne, the close friend of Michael Clarke said it was the best output humanly possible they could have had for the surgery. Shane Warne also added that Michael was looking forward to trying to make a best return to the field.
Warne also said during his commentary of the ongoing Test for the Nine Network in Brisbane that it is a better output than thought. Formerly the World Cup was a long shot, now he is more of a chance given how good the surgery went.
Earlier Michael Clarke tweeted that the “surgery went really well.”
Clarke had a bumpy lead-up to the 1st Test, battling wound and handling with the shock, emotion loss of cricketer and friend Phillip Hughes who died after being hit in the head by a bouncer by Sean Abbott during a domestic match.
Michael Clarke retired hurt, and quit in his 1st innings in Adelaide as an old rear injury blazed and he needed medicines to bat again, resuming the next day to complete a ton.
On the last match Clarke agonized the new wound while fielding, forcing him to watch on as his boys pulled off a thrilling 48 run win over the India.
He was out of the Test series due to this hamstring injury and it is expected he will be ready to play in the World Cup on 14th February which is jointly hosted by New Zealand and Australia and which begins.
