The Pak Banker - - INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS/SPORTS -

Aus­tralian pace bowler Mitchell Starc will have surgery later this week on an an­kle in­jury as he races the clock to be fit for the Ashes se­ries against Eng­land, Cricket Aus­tralia said Tues­day.

The left-armer will re­turn from the team's tour of In­dia early, miss­ing the fourth Test, for the op­er­a­tion. Aus­tralian team doc­tor Peter Brukner said Starc, who has taken 30 wick­ets in his nine-Test ca­reer, would have bone spurs on his right an­kle re­moved.
