Shadab Khan ruled out of Zimbabwe tour

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.”

The injury which has sidelined him for another 4-6 weeks will see him take no further participation in Pakistan’s tour of Zimbabwe. The 22-year-old has had a rough time with injuries in recent times, and was out with groin and hamstring problems most recently.
