Melbourne: Australia's Ellyse Perry has undergone a successful surgery on her torn hamstring that ended her T20 World Cup campaign earlier this month.

"Her first phase of that is pure rest. She's in Sydney at the moment recuperating and that's part of her plan.

"The recovery is looking good, all our medical staff are happy with how the surgery went," he added.

Her recovery is expected to take six months, and she might to be able to play when Australia take on New Zealand in October.
