Cricket Australia (CA) has announced that the seamer Ellyse Perry has undergone another ankle surgery, after it was discovered that she had developed a minor infection following surgery on the ankle recently.

Perry had surgery on the injured left ankle last month, following Australia's victorious campaign in India during the 2013 Women's World Cup. Perry picked up the injury during the tail-end of the tournament. She took 3 for 19 and scored an unbeaten 25 in the final against West Indies.

CA chief medical officer Justin Paolini said, "Ellyse had developed some pain in her left ankle in the last few days. We determined that the best course of action was to perform an ankle arthroscopy and joint washout.

"This latest surgery is expected to set Ellyse's rehabilitation timeline back an extra 2-3 weeks. Her anticipated return to bowling is another 10-12 weeks away. At this stage we still expect Ellyse to be available for selection for the Ashes series against England in August."
