Nottinghamshire batsman Michael Lumb will miss the first month of the upcoming county season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn tendon in his arm.
Lumb, who suffered the injury while playing for the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League (BBL), will out of action for the next three months.
“Michael’s surgery was successful, and he’s due to begin rehab shortly, but I don’t want to put a date on his full recovery,” Nottinghamshire physiotherapist Jon Alty told the club’s website. “He’ll be doing gentle rehabilitation work for the next four to six weeks, before a full return to batting programme from eight weeks.
Nottinghamshire’s director of cricket, Mick Newell, added: “The surgery was necessary if we’re going to see him back fully fit. This is a huge opportunity for players to impress, take advantage of the space in the team and step up.
“Greg Smith and Steven Mullaney will see this as a chance to get into our team and get our season started in the right manner.”
