In-Form's Starc To Delay Foot Surgery

IN-FORM paceman Mitchell Starc is prolonging the inevitable: he knows soon he will have to make an appointment to have surgery, but he's avoiding it.
The 23 year old has been suffering from bone spurs in his right ankle, but is hoping he will make it through the current tour of India and back-to-back Ashes series before going under the knife. After snaring 5-20 in Australia's crushing nine-wicket one-day victory over the West Indies last week, it's easy to see why he doesn't want to take a break.
"Three seasons ago, I had two spurs in the same ankle and I played two-thirds of the season. So it's not an issue we're all worried about at the moment, so I'll keep going," Starc said.
"I will probably have surgery at some point, but no time in the very near future. If it gets worse, we might have to reassess it. But it's not affecting my bowling at the moment, so it's not something I want to go under the knife for."
He expects that when he has the surgery, he will be out three months.
If you are a cricket player and have a foot problem, call our Newington, Kensington, or Middletown office to make an appointment.
