Mathews ready to bowl in IPL


Comments / 891 Views / Thursday, 19 April 2012 00:12


ANI: Sri Lankan all rounder Angelo Mathews has fully recovered from a calf injury, and has been given the thumbs up to bowl in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) by team physio Steve Mount and the team management.



Till now, Mathews couldn’t bowl for Sri Lanka due to an injury that he sustained in Australia last month.

The calf injury forced Mathews to miss the finals of the Commonwealth Bank tri-series, the Asia Cup and the first Test against England. He returned to the side for the second Test against England, but did not bowl.

Mathews’s agent Charlie Austin said the all-rounder had fully recovered from his injury, and will bowl during the IPL

 “[Mathews] recovered fully from the calf injury sustained in the CB Series and he was given the green-light to resume bowling in T20 matches before he left for India,” Austin said.

 “As he recently confirmed to the media, he wants to try to continue bowling as he would much prefer to be an all-rounder and not just a specialist batsman,” he added. Mathews has faced vilification in the local media over his decision to bowl at the IPL despite being unable to bowl for Sri Lanka in recent matches.
