Cricket Injuries on Tour with the Australian Cricket Team

Profile of Cricket Injuries


Was the profile of injuries you treated during the tour typical of elite level cricket? What sort of conditions were you presented with?

"I did plenty of medical consults although I still wasn’t as busy as the team physiotherapist, Alex Kountouris. For that particular tour, most of the injuries were in the minor category and we didn’t need to send anyone home. A lot of the profile is random as you would realise. Alex had just come from the Twenty/20 World Cup in South Africa, where the Aussie team hadn’t take a doctor. From an injury viewpoint they unfortunately had a shocker, with 3 or 4 players doing bad hamstring injuries. Alex therefore spent a fair time on the phone from South Africa to Trefor James, the Cricket Australia medical director, trying to work out which of the hamstrung players to send home. In India, from a medical viewpoint, we had quite a few players come down with gastro and I’m certain that I made myself very useful in treating these cases. The guys who needed IV fluids and IV antibiotics got better very quickly, which turned what could have been major illnesses into minor ones. This sort of treatment of course couldn’t have been done by the physiotherapist.

"A final point worth mentioning, is that I did many consults for members of the media, umpires, hotel and administrative staff and even a few for members of the Indian cricket team. Once word got around that a sports physician was with the Australian team I was pretty popular, given the alternative options. "
