In fact, they were top of the table when he began reporting on them but things went dramatically downhill.

Former Australian captain Steve Smith will undergo surgery for an elbow injury, Cricket Australia said Saturday, in a move likely to have implications for his return to the global game with less than three months left on his ban for bringing the game into disrepute.

Smith was initially expected to return to global cricket in a one-day series against Pakistan in April. The timescale for his recovery will also put him in doubt for the IPL which starts on March 23. Rehabilitation for such surgeries can take months sometimes and the Aussie cricket board would be in no mood to rush him back, given the world cup is around the corner this would effectively mean him missing the whole BPL and also a part of, if not the whole PSL. Smith will be racing against time to be fit for the World Cup in June and the Ashes series which follows.

PSL team Multan Sultans suffered a big blow on Saturday as Sultan's Australian batsman Steve Smith was ruled out of Pakistan Super League 2019 due to an elbow injury. As a result, Steven Smith is likely to be in a brace for six weeks, post which he will have to go through rehabilitation.

Smith, whose suspension from state and global cricket in Australia elapses on March 28, will go under the knife on Tuesday and be in a brace for six weeks with a period of recuperation to follow.

A Cricket Australia spokesperson said on Saturday his return to playing would be clear once they remove the brace.
