The Men in Green are on a tour of South Africa, which is currently poised 1-1. However, a star Pakistan all-rounder has been ruled out of the remainder of the tour, owing to an injury. All-rounder Shadab Khan picked up the injury to his left toe while batting in the second ODI on Sunday, April 4. Seeing the injury that Khan suffered he will play no further part in the ongoing series.
However, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said, “X-rays conducted following the match revealed an ‘intra articular communicated fracture’ though there is neither any displacement nor angulation. The injury will be treated conservatively and Shadab will undergo a four-week rehab.”
Ball hit me on the toe while batting which has ruled me out of the tour. I am working very very hard and giving it my all, I have not been able to perform at the level I want to but hard work will InshAllah pay off. InshAllah I will bounce back and win matches for Pakistan.
