Modi Undergoes Operation to Fix Finger

Hitesh Modi, one of Kenya's stalwarts in the batting department is another three to four weeks from being able to return to the crease after undergoing surgery on his finger. His left index finger was broken during Kenya's Intercontinental Cup match with Holland in March, and was not healing properly by itself. Hitesh reports that the surgery went well as there was no need to wire or re-align the bone. What was done to was to remove the volar plate, a ligament that was preventing the finger from bending. Hitesh will learn more about his recovery time when he sees the specialist again on Wednesday. While it is unfortunate for him to have had to undergo this surgery, he is in the good hands of Dr. Ian Winspur, who has plenty of experience fixing cricketers and was the man who put Alec Stewart's finger right.
All the best to Hitesh recovering from the surgery, and we look forward to seeing him back on the park. His side Chesham would also certainly welcome his return, as they had an indifferent weekend in his abscence.
