13 Sep 2021 14:23 #393386 by chairman
Australia Test captain Tim Paine is confident he will be fit for the Ashes despite needing surgery to treat a pinched nerve in his neck.

Paine, 36, has been suffering pain in his neck and left arm which has been caused by a bulging disc.

He expects to be back in full training by next month, with the first Ashes Test against England scheduled to begin in Brisbane on 8 December.

"I will be ready to go by the first Test," said Paine.

"The consensus of the spinal surgeon and the Cricket Australia medical team was to have the surgery now which will allow plenty of time to fully prepare for the summer."

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
