Surgery in Australia now

Mumbai: Harbhajan Singh, who was to get his finger operated in the US, has changed his mind and now decided to go to Australia on Saturday.

BCCI executive secretary Sharad Diwadkar said here Monday that according to a letter from Board president Jagmohan Dalmiya, Harbhajan will get his finger operated upon by hand and lower limb surgeon Dr Gregory Hoy at the Avenue Hospital, Windsor, in Melbourne.

“Harbhajan spoke to Aussie leg-spinner Shane Warne last week along with finger specialist Dr Sudhir Warrier and decided to get his finger operated in Australia. Warne himself had got operated successfully for a similar injury four years ago,” Diwadkar said.

Last week, Board doctor and sports medicine expert Dr Anant Joshi had said orthopaedic surgeon Dr Dror Paley, who had operated upon Sachin Tendulkar’s finger last month in the Sinai Hospital, would be the first choice for the operation on Harbhajan’s finger. Diwadkar said the offie would be in Australia for eight to ten days, accompanied by Dr Warrier.
