London:England women's fast bowler Katherine Brunt is a doubt for the summer series against New Zealand in August because of further problems with her back. The 21-year-old will have surgery on Friday to correct a protrusion of one of her lumbar spine discs.
Brunt will then face a 12-week recovery programme, reviewed after six weeks, but faces a battle to be match fit for the opening Twenty20 game on 12 August.
She missed a four-team series in India last winter because of a back injury.
England eves will play 3 Twenty20 ties and six ODIs against visitors White Ferns.
