In a recent development, right-arm fast bowler Zaman Khan has been called up to replace Naseem Shah in Pakistan’s squad for the Men’s ODI Asia Cup 2023. The change was made due to Naseem Shah’s right shoulder injury, which he sustained during a match against India.
Zaman Khan’s inclusion in the squad was confirmed earlier today, and he will be joining the team’s training session at the Rawalpindi Cricket Institute and Pitch Ground (RPICS) later in the evening. His addition to the squad is expected to bolster Pakistan’s fast bowling department as they continue to compete in the Asia Cup.
Naseem Shah’s injury is being closely monitored by the team’s medical panel, who are taking all necessary precautions to ensure his swift recovery. The team’s management is keen on managing his condition carefully, considering the upcoming ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023.
Meanwhile, Haris Rauf, who refrained from bowling during the reserve day of the Pakistan-India contest as a precautionary measure, is progressing well in his recovery. Haris had experienced discomfort in his right flank on the first day of the match but is now on the road to recovery.
Team doctor Sohail Saleem expressed the importance of these fast bowlers to the team’s success, stating, “These two fast bowlers are our assets, and the team’s medical panel is dedicated to providing them with the best possible care as we look ahead to the all-important World Cup.”
The Asia Cup 2023 is a crucial tournament for Pakistan as they prepare for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup. The team is focused on ensuring the fitness and well-being of their players, especially their fast bowlers, who play a vital role in their performance on the field.
With Zaman Khan’s inclusion, Pakistan hopes to maintain their competitive edge in the Asia Cup and build momentum for the upcoming World Cup. Fans are eagerly awaiting to see how the team performs in these important tournaments, and the management is leaving no stone unturned to ensure their success.
