Just In: Sadly, according to insiders at the International Cricket Grounds, Jonny Bairstow will not be able to play again until 2023 after breaking his leg in a golf accident. The injured athlete took to Instagram to update fans on his injury.
The spearhead English all-round Jonny Bairstow sustained a severe leg injury last month after slipping during a round of Golf. As a result, he missed the T20 World Cup in Australia and the Test Series against Pakistan.
In a recent Instagram post, Bairstow announced he would not be able to play any more games this year after undergoing successful broken leg surgery and dislocated ankle. With this, the English team will travel to Australia to play World Cup without him.
Jonny wrote on Instagram, “The actual injury was as such…a broken fibula in 3 places which required a plate, I dislocated my ankle which in turn meat, I did my syndesmosis joint and lateral ligament along with a couple more bits”.
Anyway, the surgery was successful, and I am now three weeks post-op and have had my staples removed. Now, it’s all about preventing swelling and restoring motion to my ankle. I won’t be participating in anything else during 2022, that much is certain, but I can’t wait to see what 2023 has in store for me, he continued.
Notably, English Cricket Team is ready to fly to Australia to partaking in the Men’s World Cup. Of course, the absence of Jonny would impact England’s performance to some extent.
