Australia captain Michael Clarke may be fully fit before the 2015 World Cup gets underway in February.
The news comes after Clarke had his hamstring surgically repaired on Tuesday.
Clarke tore his hamstring and injured his back during the first Test against India in Adelaide and was subsequently ruled out for the rest of the series.
However, while Clarke admitted that he may never play again, legendary Australia spinner Shane Warne revealed that the Australian captain was “looking forward to trying to make a good comeback”.
“It was the best result humanly possible they could have had for the operation,” Warne told the Nine Network. “It’s a better result than expected. Previously the World Cup was a long shot – now he’s more of a chance given how well the operation went.”
