Curtis Campher to miss Netherlands series due to ankle surgery

"Curtis will have surgery for an ankle impingement issue that he has been managing for a prolonged period of time"

South Africa-born Curtis Campher made his Ireland debut last year against England and made an instant impact, scoring half-centuries from No. 7 in his first two appearances. Since then, he has been a regular member of the side as the premier seam-bowling all-rounder for Ireland.

However, the side will miss his services for the upcoming World Cup Super League series in the Netherlands next month for the injury he sustained during Ireland Wolves' first unofficial ODI against Netherlands-A last week. Mark Rausa, Ireland's head of sports science, physiotherapy, and medical services, suggested that he could be fit to play at least a part of the home international series against South Africa and Zimbabwe later this summer.

"Curtis will have surgery for an ankle impingement issue that he has been managing for a prolonged period of time," Rausa said. "During last week's Wolves game at Oak Hill, his ankle concern had progressed to the point where he could no longer continue bowling.

"He immediately had the ankle scanned and saw a specialist today for assessment, where it was agreed the best course of action was surgery to hopefully resolve the issue long-term. Curtis will then begin his rehab immediately after in preparation for the summer home international series."
