Jonny Bairstow provides an update on his recuperation and says he will return to cricket in 2023. The 33-year-old will miss Australia’s T20 World Cup as well as his country’s Test series in Pakistan.

Johnny Bairstow, England’s cricketer of the summer, has revealed the timetable for his return to the field following a catastrophic golf accident that left him with a broken leg and a dislocated ankle. The 33-year-old will not participate in England’s T20 World Cup campaign and will return to cricket in 2023.

Earlier this year, the Yorkshireman had a purple streak in red-ball cricket, scoring 681 runs at an average of 75.6 and scoring four hundreds. But disaster struck for the flamboyant hitter and England when he stumbled on the third hole at Pannal Golf Club in Harrogate. Bairstow underwent successful surgery a week later.

“I am just writing this to give you all an update on my injury and progress. The actual injury was as such… a broken fibula in 3 places which required a plate, I dislocated my ankle which in turn meant I did my syndesmosis joint and lateral ligament along with a couple more bits. All in all, I have done a proper job on it!”

Bairstow revealed the depth of his damage in a dramatic Instagram post.

“Anyway… on the positive side the operation went well and I am now three weeks post surgery and my staples have been removed. It’s now all about swelling prevention and getting my ankle moving once again. These next few weeks/couple of months are the key to the recovery”

Prior to the injury, the powerful hitter was chosen to England’s T20 World team, but after following successful surgery on a fractured leg and dislocated ankle, the Yorkshireman has stated that he will not play any cricket for the rest of the year. But he expects to make a good comeback next year.

“As for a time scale on return to play I’m afraid it is too early to say, the first targets in mind are getting me back on my two feet again and making sure it’s right. One thing is for sure and that is I shall not be partaking in anything more during 2022… however I cannot wait for what 2023 holds”
