London: England fast bowler Darren Gough said on Wednesday he could need a knee operation, which will keep him out of action for up to five weeks.

Yorkshire quick Gough has just over a month in order to be fit for the start of the English season in April after sustaining a cartilage injury during England's final One-day International against New Zealand. However, the 31-year-old paceman who was not included in the Test squad after making himself unavailable for last year's tour to India, remains optimistic about making a swift recovery. "Even if I do need an operation on my knee I don't see it as a major problem, and I reckon I'll be fit for the start of the season in April," he told a Website. "These days they can perform keyhole surgery which speeds up the recovery period. So at most I'll be out for four weeks, five weeks maximum."
