Khushdil Shah Ruled Out for Three Weeks

Pakistan player Khushdil Shah will not be featured for three weeks due to a thumb injury which he had sustained in a training session. 

Pakistan’s Khushdil Shah was on a training session in Derby as a preparation for their team’s four-day intra-squad match. There, he has incurred a fracture in his thumb which had caused him to be ruled out for three weeks. 

As per Pakistan Cricket Board’s statement, ‘Left-handed batsman Khushdil Shah has been ruled out for up to three weeks after suffering a fracture in his left thumb while batting during Saturday’s training session in Derby. Khushdil is not featuring in the ongoing four-day intra-squad match and will not be available for selection for the second four-dayer, which will be played from 24-27 July in Derby’. 

‘As the nail is intact and there is no injury to nail bed, the orthopaedic surgeon, team physician and team physiotherapist expect Khushdil to resume physical training by the end of the next week’, the PCB added. 

Currently, the Pakistan team is playing a four-day intra-squad match in preparation for their upcoming Test match against England next month. The said tour will consist of three Tests and three ODIs. To know more about cricket formats, check out Betwala’s cricket guide.
