BRISBANE, Australia (CMC):

West Indies Women batting star Deandra Dottin has quipped that she looks as if she has fought legendary boxer Mike Tyson after undergoing a successful facial surgery to rectify injuries sustained in an ugly on-field collision during the Women's Big Bash earlier this week.

The 25-year-old suffered multiple fractures to her cheekbones after colliding with Brisbane Heat teammate Laura Harris as both attempted to field a delivery on the boundary at Allan Border Field last Tuesday.

"[The operation was] a great success I have been told. Thank you to the wonderful staff at Wesley Private Hospital in Brisbane," the Barbadian all-rounder said on her Facebook page.

"Face looks like I have gone 12 rounds with Mike Tyson, but I feel really good. Thanks to all the well wishers once more."

Dottin underwent surgery here Friday and has been ruled out of action for an undetermined period.

She was expected to be a key member of the Heat campaign this season and had already weighed in prominently with bat and ball.
