Staff at a Beckenham hospital were bowled over when international cricket star Dirk Nannes dropped by for a check-up, ahead of the T20 Champions League in India.
The dutchman, who plays for the Chennai Super Kings, visited BMI The Sloane Hospital, in Albemarle Road, and received a thorough examination from consultant shoulder and upper limb surgeon Professor Tony Kochhar.
The specialist in shoulders and elbows has a large sporting patient list, including professional boxers, martial artists and other international cricketers.
Dirk said: “Ahead of any major tournament such as the T20 Champions League you need to ensure you are in peak physical shape.
“As a sportsman and a bowler my upper limb strength and mobility are crucial to me and Professor Kochhar and his team have truly been an invaluable asset in ensuring I can continue with my passion well into the future.”
The fast bowler’s Chennai Super Kings were defeated at the semi-final stage of the T20 Champions League on Friday by the Rajasthan Royals, who eventually lost in the final to the Mumbai Indians on Sunday.
