In a huge blow to Pakistan’s bowling attack, fast bowler Naseem Shah is doubtful for the 2nd Test against England in Multan. According to fresh reports, Shah suffered a shoulder niggle which was first sighted during the Rawalpindi game. 

Notably, Naseem was Pakistan’s standout bowler in Rawalpindi as he picked five wickets in the game, but lack of support from others didn’t help the host. Reports confirmed that the young prodigy was not part of the training session in Multan on Thursday. 

Shaheen Shah-less Pakistan side had suffered a major blow when its debutant in the Rawalpindi Test, Haris Rauf, injured his quad and is now ruled out of the series.

Without Rauf and Naseem Shah, Mohammad Wasim Jr is likely to debut in Multan Test and form a pace attack alongside Mohammad Ali, who made his debut in Rawalpindi Test. Ali and Wasim have been a regular part of Pakistan’s white-ball set-up. 

However, Babar Azam had already claimed that he is expecting Multan pitch to be a turner, due to which team management will field - Zahid Mehmood, leggy Mohammad Nawaz, Abrar Ahmed and left-arm orthodox Nauman Ali.

Meanwhile, England have made one change for the second Test, bringing in Mark Wood for the injured Liam Livingstone.

"I don’t focus on what people say about me. My only aim is to help Pakistan win with my performance. I am under no pressure and always try to give my best on the field. I don’t have to prove anything regarding my credential as a player. We want to play the final of the World Test Championship," Pakistan's captain Babar Azam said.
