Indian batsman Manoj Tiwary will once again be out of action, this time for four months, due to a knee injury.

According to reports, the right-hand batsman twisted his left knee during a football drill for the Kalighat cricket club in Kolkata. His recovery period means he will be out of contention for selection to India's team for tour to Zimbabwe - starting July 24.

The 27-year-old will be flying to England on June 29 to meet Dr Andrew Williams for consultation and immediate surgery. Dr Williams is a British orthopaedic surgeon and knee specialist, who has also worked with Cheteshwar Pujara and many other well-known cricketers in the past.

Tiwary has spent more time out of field than on field due to various inuries since December 2012. In December, he sustained a back injury during Ranji Trophy and was advised a 6-week rest. This kept him out of selection for the limited-overs series against England and Pakistan in December and January.

He also injured his shoulder during the Vijay Hazare Trophy semi-final against Delhi in March and bruised his right hand while playing for Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League in April, this year.
