Sangakkara making steady progress
Kumar Sangakkara is hopeful he will be back in action for Kings XI Punjab early next week.
The Sri Lankan’s impressive performances with the bat in the early weeks of the Indian Premier League were interrupted by a muscle injury.
He was forecasted a 14-day recovery period and is now halfway through his rehabilitation.
”It was a tear of the muscle of the 11th rib,” Sangakkara said on Setanta Sports.
“It has been going well, I am recovering well, I have just started some batting in the nets, doing weights and stability work in the gym, so hopefully I will be back soon.
I am hopefully going to be back in seven days, which should cover the recovery period.
”It depends on how individuals recover, but up to now I have been coming along well and want make sure I am 100 percent.”
