Australian Richardson pacemaker undergoes another shoulder surgery
MELBOURNE Australia pacemaker Jhye Richardson He underwent another shoulder stabilizing surgery that dislocated last year, and doctors hope that without crickets this time of year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it will aid in recovery.
Richardson had an operation on his right shoulder late last month, the same shoulder that was dislocated during a game against Pakistan It has been more than a year since he left it out for six months, cricket.com.au reported.
The 23-year-old has already missed the World cup and deadly spoils rotates due to his dislocated shoulder.
"All the ligaments become loose when you do dislocate and then the surgery essentially involves tightening things up," CA's head of sports science, Alex Kountouris , he told News Corp. Many other players have had that in the past. We hope that fixes the problem.
It is a long surgery, but it gives you the opportunity now that we are not going to play until ... September, October, November or December ... obviously it is an opportunity with that.
"It was nasty (the original injury). He dived with a lot of force on his arm. It was something that was quite bad. It's probably not surprising he's had ongoing symptoms and not surprising in general for cricketers because they do need their shoulders to be fairly mobile."
Richardson has scalped 24 wickets in 13 ODIs and six wickets in two Tests which were against Sri Lanka in early 2019.
