Notts batsman undergoes surgery

Notts veteran Darren Bicknell expects to be fit for the start of the county season following shoulder surgery.

The 37-year-old batsman suffered a partially torn tendon while doing weight training last November.

"I tried to have a bat earlier in the month and that was painful so it was decided to have the operation now so it will be ready for the summer.

"Everything went smoothly but it will take six weeks to fully recover," he told the club's official website.

Bicknell joined Notts from Surrey in 2000 and has been awarded a new one-year contract.

He has scored almost 18,000 first-class runs during his career, including 44 centuries, and contributed 1,066 runs at an average of 46.34 to the club's Champions Division Two title success last summer.
