Andrew Symonds One Day International Return Hopes


Injured Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds could be back for the Commonwealth Bank Series against South Africa or New Zealand after an arthroscopy on his right knee revealed no major damage.

Symonds was ruled out of third 3 Mobile Test at the SCG after struggling with knee soreness during the Boxing Day Test match at the MCG.

The 33-year-old, who developed the pain during the series opener against the Proteas in Perth, opted to undergo surgery on the knee to determine if there was any major problems, but the arthroscopy revealed cartilage damage only, meaning he is a chance to get back for the two upcoming one-day international series.

“Although there were some minor signs of wearing, the main problem was loose fragments of cartilage that were jamming in the joint, which were removed,” Cricket Australia Doctor, Trefor James, said.

“We will monitor Andrew’s progress in the coming weeks, but are hopeful he will become available for selection at some point during the Commonwealth Bank Series against South Africa or New Zealand.”
