El­bow surgery for Steve Smith

The Herald (South Africa) - - Sport -

For­mer Aus­tralia cap­tain Steve Smith will serve out the re­main­der of his 12-month ban from in­ter­na­tional and state cricket re­cu­per­at­ing from surgery on his in­jured el­bow, Cricket Aus­tralia (CA) said on Satur­day.

Smith, 29, banned with his vice-cap­tain David Warner and bats­man Cameron Ban­croft for his part in the New­lands ball-tam­per­ing scan­dal, re­turned from the Bangladesh Premier League on Satur­day for scans on the in­jured joint.

A CA spokesman said Smith would re­quire an op­er­a­tion on Tues­day to re­pair a lig­a­ment in his right el­bow and would be in a brace for six weeks after that. –
