Naseem Shah ruled out of Karachi Test due to injury
LAHORE: Young right-arm pacer Naseem Shah has been ruled out of the Karachi Test of the ongoing historic series between Pakistan and England due to a shoulder injury, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirmed.
According to the PCB, a niggle in his right shoulder resulted in him missing the last match of the historic home series against England.
Notably, discomfort in his shoulder also barred Naseem from partaking in the recently concluded Multan Test.
The PCB also shared that the right-arm pacer will now get rehabilitation at the National High Performance Centre (NHPC), while the team management had not requested his replacement as of yet.
“The fast bowler will travel to Lahore where he will undergo further assessment at the National High Performance Centre before beginning rehabilitation,” PCB stated.
“The team management has not requested for his replacement at this stage,” PCB added.
It is pertinent to mention that the squads of Pakistan and England will land in Karachi tomorrow afternoon to lock horns in the last Test of the series, scheduled to take place from December 17 to 21.
