In the first match of Asia Cup Super 4, India defeated Pakistan by 288 runs. Two big bowlers of Pakistan got injured in this match. Harris Rauf did not bowl on the reserve day and Naseem Shah got injured mid-match. Now PCB has shared a big update regarding the fitness of both the bowlers.
Due to rain, reserve day was also declared for the India-Pakistan match.
On the reserve day, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul made a big partnership of 233 runs for the third wicket. Batting first, India scored a big score of 356 runs. One reason behind this was that two big bowlers of Pakistan were injured in this match. These bowlers are very important players for Pakistan.
Harris Rauf did not bowl on the reserve day and Naseem Shah got injured in the middle of the match. In such a situation, Pakistan may face a big shock a few days before the World Cup. Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has given a big update on the fitness of both the bowlers.
Naseem Shah suffered a right shoulder injury in the match against India, due to which he is now out of the Asia Cup. In place of Naseem Shah, fast bowler Zaman Khan will now be included in the Asia Cup team. At the same time, Naseem is under the supervision of the medical panel in view of the World Cup starting next month.
Harris Rauf also could not bowl on the reserve day against India due to pain on the right side of his waist, on which the PCB is keeping an eye on. He is recovering well. The team of doctors will provide all possible help to both the bowlers to make them healthy before the World Cup.
