Pakistan Cricket Board on Monday issued an update regarding the fitness progress of the team’s fast bowlers Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf.
In a statement, PCB said that “Left-arm fast bowler Shaheen Afridi will resume his rehabilitation under the National Men’s team’s medical staff in Karachi from today”
It added, “While providing Shaheen top-notch care, this move will allow the medical staff to track his progression and pave way for his smooth return to action.”
Meanwhile, the Selection committee and team management have invited right-arm fast bowler Haris Rauf to be assessed by the team’s medical staff so a decision can be taken on his availability for the three One-Day Internationals against New Zealand that will be played next week.
Remember that the Pakistan cricket team is scheduled to play a three-match ODI series against New Zealand from 9th January 2023 in Karachi.
The left-arm pacer Shaheen has been undergoing rehabilitation after he landed awkwardly and sustained knee discomfort in the final of the 2022 T20 World Cup, and due to his injury he missed the home Test series against England and New Zealand.
Pacer Haris Rauf, on the other hand, sustained a quad injury during the first Test against England in Rawalpindi due to which he was ruled out of the test series.
