Hasan Ali Ruled out Against South Africa- Pakistan will face South Africa (PAK vs SA) in the 26th match of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. For the Pakistan team, this match is going to be no less than 'do or die'. Before this match, Pakistan team has suffered a big blow. Let us tell you that the key player of Babar Azam's team was out before this match.
This player is none other than PAK team's star fast bowler Hasan Ali, who will not be able to play in the match against South Africa in Chennai. Hasan Ali has gone out of the match due to fever. This news came as a big shock to the Pakistan team.
Actually, Hasan Ali has been having fever since last night and he did not even participate in the practice session on Thursday, but he is out of the match against South Africa. 29-year-old Hasan was included in the squad for the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 after the injury to Naseem Shah.
If we talk about Hasan Ali's five matches in the World Cup 2023, then let us tell you that he has taken 8 wickets at an economy of 5.82. In such a situation, his exclusion from the team is no less than a shock for the Pakistan team.
At the same time, Mohammad Wasim is likely to play against South Africa in place of Hasan Ali. If Mohammad Wasim gets a chance, he will play in the World Cup for the first time.
Pakistan team lost 3 out of 5 matches in the World Cup 2023. If this result is not achieved in 6 matches then it will be difficult to reach the semi-finals.
Along with this, before the important match, the Pakistan Cricket Board said in a statement that considering the team's performance in the World Cup, the board will take further decisions which are in the interest of Pakistan cricket. The PCB urges fans, former players and stakeholders to stand with the team at this time.
