England star batter Jonny Bairstow has given an update on his situation following surgery and revealed the true extent of the injury he has sustained. Bairstow was injured in a freak accident while playing golf.

The 33-year-old, who sustained the injury last month after slipping during a round of golf, will miss the T20 World Cup in Australia and his country's subsequent Test series in Pakistan.
After successful surgery for a broken leg and dislocated ankle, Bairstow announced he will not be able to play this season. On Tuesday, Bairstow shared an update on his injuries on Instagram. He stumbled on his way to a tee shot, resulting in an injury.

He will also miss the Test series against Pakistan in December.
The 33-year-old wrote: "Hi everyone. I'm only writing this to update you all on my injuries and progress. The actual injury was like this... a broken fibula in 3 places that required a plate, I dislocated my ankle which in turn meant I injured my syndesmosis joint and collateral ligament along with a few other bits. All in all I did a great job with it!
“Anyway… on the positive side the surgery went well and I'm now three weeks post-op and my staples have been removed. Now it's all about preventing swelling and getting my ankle moving again. These next few weeks/months are the keys to recovery," Bairstow's post said.
The explosive batter was named in England's T20 World squad before the injury, but after successful surgery on a broken leg and dislocated ankle, the Yorkshireman has announced he will not take part in cricket for the remainder of the year. But he's looking forward to a strong return next year.
"As for a timeline for returning to the game, unfortunately it's too early to say, the first goals in mind are to get me back on my feet and make sure it's right. One thing is for sure, and that is I won't be attending anything else in 2022...but I can't wait to see what 2023 has in store," Bairstow added in his post.
