Swann has surgery

Calcutta: England off-spinner Graeme Swann has had successful surgery on his troublesome right elbow and will now start a rehabilitation programme, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said in a statement on Thursday.

Swann had to pull out of the squad to face New Zealand on the eve of the first Test this month so he could fly to the US for the operation.

The 33-year-old will hope to be fit when England host New Zealand in May and June before the Champions Trophy.

“(Swann) has undergone an uncomplicated operation on his right elbow to excise excess bone formation that had re-accumulated following his previous operation (on the same elbow) four years ago,” said the ECB statement.
