Injured Ellyse Perry undergoes surgery to treat hamstring injury

MELBOURNE: Australian off-road star Ellyse Perry , who missed the semifinal and the women's final T20 World Cup after suffering a hamstring injury, he has successfully undergone surgery, coach Matthew Mott said.

Perry's T20 World Cup campaign had ended after she tore her hamstring while attempting an athletic throw during their final group game against New Zealand.

Ellyse had a hamstring surgery, she's doing well. Your first phase of that is pure rest. He is currently in Sydney recovering and that is part of his plan. Recovery looks good, all of our medical staff are happy with how the surgery went, Mott said quoted by Cricket via conference call.

It would take up to six months for Perry to recover and she was going to miss the limited tour of South Africa and the T20 women's challenge games in India.

However, with the COVID-19 pandemic stopping all sports activities in the world, Perry can take it easy now, as he won't miss much action.

Mott said the break will reassure both Perry and Tayla Vlaeminck.

Tayla had been injured on the eve of the World Cup.

It will still take a little while (for her to go bowling again), but the fact that everyone else is getting too much rest is probably a bit of a relief (for her and Perry), because they're not missing as much as they would have. done if we had been to South Africa, Mott said.

Perry, the current ICC Cricket Player of the Year, watched from the sidelines that his team defeated India in the final on March 8 to defend the title.
