Lahore, Mar 2 (UNI) Tearaway Pakistan bowler Shoaib Akhtar has been advised two-month rest after undergoing orthoscopy surgery on both his knees in Melbourne.

The News reported today quoting a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official that the surgery was carried out on Wednesday by the well known Aussie knee specialist Dr David Young who had also sent reports of the operation and of latest tests and scans for reference to the Board's panel of medical experts.

''Our Board's doctor Sohail Saleem had a discussion with Shoaib after the surgery and he is fine but he has been advised complete rest for the next few weeks. Dr Young would determine how long Shoaib needs to rest and then start a rehabilitation process but has estimated the recovery period to at least two months'' the official was quoted as saying by the newspaper.

The official said the Australian surgeon had carried out the operation to remove floating pieces of damaged cartilage in the knees and to suck out excessive fluid, which was causing Shoaib a lot of problems.
