SURREY BATSMAN James Benning is facing a battle to be fit for the start of next season after undergoing surgery on his troublesome back this week.
Benning, whose injury problems affected his form in the 2008 season, went under the knife yesterday (Wednesday) for an operation that will see bulges shaved off two discs in his back.
Following surgery at the Lister Hospital in Chelsea, the explosive opener has been given strict orders to rest for two weeks as the long road to recovery begins.
But the 25-year-old is optimistic that he will be fighting fit come the start of the new campaign.
"This injury to my back is something that was restricting my mobility last season," he told Surrey's official website. "I'm just pleased to be getting the problem sorted and starting to be ready for next season.
"I will have to be on the sofa for two weeks after the op - which if you ask anybody who knows me will be quite a struggle! However the thought of me pulling on a Brown Caps shirt for the 2009 season will help me through."
