Sydney, Jul 7 (UNI) Australia captain Ricky Ponting has undergone surgery on a wrist injury he suffered during the West Indies tour, Cricket Australia (CA) said today.
''Ricky has sustained a tendon injury that requires repair of tissues that hold the tendon in place-- this surgery was performed today,'' CA medical officer Trefor James said in a statement.
Ponting picked up the injury during the third one-dayer in St George's, Grenada on June 29.
James said a decision on Ponting's availability for the home series against Bangladesh in August and the Champions Trophy in Pakistan a month later would be made after monitoring his recovery in the coming weeks.
Australia completed a 5-0 sweep in the one-day series yesterday after winning the three-match Test series 2-0.
