Sreesanth has not played for India since August 2011
Indian pace bowler, Sreesanth has been ruled out of any cricketing activities for the next five months, after it was revealed that he would be needing two surgeries to repair his toes.
Sreesanth, has not played for the national team since the England Test matches in August last year, and since then has only taken part in one first-class match before coming down with the toe injury.
Sreesanth, via his Twitter account, said: “Got to get 2 surgery (on both my toes) will be out of the game for 5 months..hopefully will try to get back soon.. Take care..thanks a lot.”
The pace bowler had refused to go under the knife in December last year, instead choosing to try some ayurvedic treatment.
Sreesanth, was hoping to be back in full form by the Commonwealth Bank series in February, but failed to recover sufficiently from the injury he had sustained.
He was also supposed to be playing for the Rajasthan Royals in this year’s IPL, but will not be able to since he will be requiring the two surgeries.
Sreesanth’s injury comes just a day after Rajasthan Royal’s West Indian import, Kevon Cooper was ruled out for the rest of the tournament after fracturing his knee.
