Indian batsman Manoj Tiwary will once again be out of action, this time for four months, due to a knee injury.

According to reports, the right-hand batsman twisted his left knee during a football drill for the Kalighat cricket club in Kolkata. His recovery period means he will be out of contention for selection to India's team for tour to Zimbabwe - starting July 24.

The 27-year-old will be flying to England on June 29 to meet Dr Andrew Williams for consultation and immediate surgery. Dr Williams is a British orthopaedic surgeon and knee specialist, who has also worked with Cheteshwar Pujara and many other well-known cricketers in the past.
