The 36-year-old, who represented the Sunrisers Hyderabad franchise in the cash-rich league, had sustained a high-grade tendon injury and the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) medical team, after assessing his injury, recommended that he consult an orthopaedic specialist in London.

The Delhi left-armer underwent surgery on Tuesday.

Former India batsman and Sunrisers team mentor VVS Laxman, took to social networking site Twitter to inform about Nehra’s successful surgery.

“Nehra ji had a successful operation last night in London. Wishing him a speedy recovery,” Laxman wrote on Wednesday.

The Delhi pacer, who formed a formidable trio –alongside Bangladesh’s Mustafizur Rahman and Bhuvneshwar Kumar — for the Hyderabad team, took nine wickets in eight matches before sustaining the injury in a league match against Kings XI Punjab.

The David Warner-led Hyderabad team will take on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the eliminator at the Ferozeshah Kotla Stadium here on Wednesday.
