Aussie Physiotherapist confirms Mitchell Johnson’s is having severe injury – Cricket News Update

Physiotherapist of the Australian cricket team, Alex Kountouris confirmed that the speedster, Mitchell Johnson, who has been ruled out from International cricket due to toe injury, is likely to undergo surgery.

The 43-year-year Physiotherapist also revealed that the left-arm pacer would not be available for the selection for the entire summer season.

Moreover, the Cyprus-born, Kountouris said that Johnson’s treatment will be started in the ongoing week in Melbourne.   

"Mitchell will travel to Melbourne this week to be reviewed by specialist doctors and will most likely need surgery, which is expected to keep him out of cricket for four to five months," he issued a statement on Cricket Australia’s official website.

The Queensland-born fast bowler started his Test career in 2007 against Sri Lanka at Brisbane Cricket Ground, and since his first appearance he has always been considered as a quality fast bowler of the Aussie bowling line up.

The way Notch takes pause while delivering the ball has always been a hell of job for the batsmen to read his tricky line and length.

The seasoned campaigner has played 47 Test matches for Australia so far, claiming 190 wickets with an average of 31.29.

Whereas, Johnson has also been right on the button with his batting recitals at times, scoring outstanding century against South Africa at Newlands in Cape Town in 2009.

Meanwhile, the left-handed batsman, who has earned Test 1287 runs, has smashed 6 half-centuries as well in the longer version of the game.

Coming back to his recent injury, the side’s Physiotherapist added that he will plan for Johnson’s rehabilitation phase after the operation of the pacer.    

"The program for his recovery will be assessed following any surgery," he added in same statement.

Following the news of surgery’ possibility, the Aussie speedster showed immense desire to represent the country at his earliest.

Meanwhile, he also refused the speculations that his Test career is over, as he has not been in good form due to fitness issues.
