Mark Wood further wrote, “Thanks to Professor Roger van Riet and Mr Ali Noorani for sorting me out and all the staff who made me feel totally at ease. Langers, the England physio videoed me coming out of the anaesthetic – Bah, I talk some absolute rubbish!!!” “Who says hospital gowns aren’t cool eh!!??”

Meanwhile, in one of the videos, the fast bowler spoke about the possibility of his return to the IPL. Talking about the same, he said, “Is my shoulder meant to be sore? That’s weird that. I’ve have had elbow surgery but my shoulders aching. Whatever. I’ll still bowl fast. I am so sad. Not [playing] this time. I like Andy Flower. He’s a nice guy. Keyhole. Bowen gone? Lollipop, lollipop.”
