Steve Smith comeback to be delayed by elbow surgery

He likes to let people know that he is a supporter of county cricket, a fact his colleagues will testify to and bemoan in equal quantities.

Ex-Australia captain Steve Smith will have elbow surgery and may not be fit to make his worldwide return from a 12-month ban at the end of March.

The former captain, who was leading Comilla Victorians in the Bangladesh Premier League, returned to Australia overnight as his elbow problem flared up. The timescale for his recovery will also put him in doubt for the IPL which starts on March 23. It still remains unclear when the batsman would be fit to return to the squad.

More players get injured under Eddie Jones
There had not been enough time to properly judge if the lower tackle height trial had reduced concussions in the Championship Cup. The report comes after news that a fourth French player has died within eight months from injuries sustained in a match.

Australian ODI captain Aaron Finch said that once Smith and David Warner serve out their bans, they will be welcomed back to the team with open arms.

Former Australian captain Steve Smith's return to global cricket is set to be derailed due to an elbow injury. The Australian underwent tests and has been advised six weeks of rest by the physicians which means he will not only be out of the ongoing BPL but also the Pakistan Super League (PSL) which is due to be played between February and March.

"Return-to-play timeframes will be clearer once the brace has been removed", added the CA spokesperson. Both players have instead played in Canada, the Caribbean and Bangladesh in T20 competitions, and on home soil, they have played NSW Premier Cricket with success. However, the setback comes with less than six months to go before Australia's World Cup title defence in England, immediately followed by an away Ashes series.
