White Ferns all-rounder Frankie Mackay returned back to the side after almost five years in the T20I squad against India but on her comeback game, she suffered an ankle injury.
Mackay is due to undergo surgery today (February 20). She will take around 10-12 weeks to recover before running again, and total recovery time to be four to six months.
“Obviously after a long time out of the side it wasn’t how I saw the day panning out, but I loved every minute,” Mackay said.
“A few people have said I don’t do things by halves so I will take that attitude into my recovery and rehab as well.”
Mackay also mentioned that getting back in the White Ferns side and singing the national anthem all over again was one of her proudest moments.
“I’m gutted to be missing games for the White Ferns and Canterbury Magicians but they are both outstanding teams and I wish them all the best.”
