Fast bowler expected to be out of action until May at the earliest after successful procedure

Mark Wood, the England fast bowler, has undergone elbow surgery in London to address an “impingement issue” that caused him to pull out of both the ongoing West Indies tour and the IPL.

Wood pulled up injured midway through the drawn first Test in Antigua, and was subsequently flown home early after complaining of “acute pain” in his right elbow.

News of the surgery, which took place on Saturday, was revealed by the bowler himself in an Instagram post, in which he was filmed emerging from theatre while still under general anaesthetic, and declaring that he had been “Ibiza chilled” throughout the procedure.

“No more boney fragments in my arm!” Wood wrote. “Thanks to Professor Roger van Riet and Mr Ali Noorani for sorting me out and all the staff who made me feel totally at ease.

“Langers, the England physio videoed me coming out of the anaesthetic – Bah, I talk some absolute rubbish!!!”
