India’s fast-bowling allrounder Shardul Thakur has successfully had foot surgery and will be out of competitive cricket for at least three months.

On Wednesday, Thakur shared a post-surgery photo on Instagram with the caption “operated successfully.” This is his second foot surgery; the first was in 2019. The problem returned during India’s South Africa tour last December-January.

Thakur Shares Update Post-Surgery, Eyes Return to Domestic Cricket

Thakur last played for India in the first Test in Centurion during that series. He returned for the Ranji Trophy last season, helping Mumbai win their 42nd title. However, he asked the BCCI for longer breaks between matches to recover and prepare adequately.

In IPL 2024, Thakur played for Chennai Super Kings, taking five wickets in nine matches with an economy rate of 9.75.

As a Grade C contract holder with the BCCI, the board covered his treatment costs. There’s hope he might return in time for the upcoming domestic season.
