Tasmanian Tiger Jordan Silk will undergo surgery tonight to repair a fractured collarbone, sustained while playing for the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash last night.
Silk hurt his shoulder while diving to stop a ball on the boundary against the Melbourne Stars at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
The 25-year-old will remain in Sydney for a week post-operation, before returning to Tasmania to recover under the guidance of Cricket Tasmania medical staff.
Silk has been in good form for the Tigers in the Sheffield Shield, hitting a century in the team’s most recent game against New South Wales prior to the start of the Big Bash season.
The right-hander has compiled 263 runs this season at an average of 32.88.
