The Yorkshireman enjoyed a stellar 2022 before his injury, plundering SIX centuries in just 10 matches at an average of 66.31.
“The actual injury was … a broken fibula in three places which required a plate, I dislocated my ankle which in turn meant I did my syndesmosis joint and lateral ligament along with a couple more bits,” Bairstow wrote on Instagram.

“On the positive side the operation went well and I am now three weeks post surgery and my staples have been removed. It’s now all about swelling prevention and getting my ankle moving once again,” the post further read.
Bairstow, 33, added that it was too early to say when he could expect to return to playing, but he would certainly not be back before the end of the year.
“One thing is for sure and that is I shall not be partaking in anything more during 2022 … however I cannot wait for what 2023 holds,” he said.
