Ashish Nehra has undergone a successful knee surgery in London. Former India batsman and Sunrisers team mentor VVS Laxman, took to social networking site Twitter to inform about Nehra’s successful surgery. “Nehra ji had a successful operation last night in London. Wishing him a speedy recovery,” Laxman wrote today.

Veteran pacer was ruled out of the ongoing Indian Premier League tournament with a hamstring injury. The 36-year-old Nehra had sustained a high-grade tendon injury and the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) medical team, after assessing his injury, recommended that he consult an orthopaedic specialist in London.
