Johnson’s toe infection spreads to leg

Johnson’s toe infection spreads to leg
SYDNEY: Star Australian paceman Mitchell Johnson is having further problems with an infected toe which forced him out of this month’s world Twenty20 tournament in Bangladesh.
Cricket Australia said on Friday that the infection had spread to Johnson’s right leg and required further treatment.
The infection began from a cut suffered during Australia’s series-clinching third Test triumph over South Africa earlier this month.
“He is recovering from an infection that began in his right big toe, before affecting his right leg,” CA said in a statement.
“Johnson is being managed by a team of medical specialists.” His place in the Australian T20 squad was filled by Doug Bollinger, who joined the side in Bangladesh this week ahead of Sunday’s (tomorrow’s) opening game against Pakistan.
