Riaz performed well against Afghanistan despite fractured finger

Pakistan fast bowler Wahab Riaz stated that he played with a fractured finger in an ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match against Afghanistan on June 29. Riaz took two wickets in eight overs and played a crucial knock with the bat that helped Pakistan win by 3 wickets.

“See, I already knew that I had a fractured finger. It’s all about will-power. I am here to give whatever my team requires,” said Riaz. “I told the captain (Sarfaraz Ahmed) that I would give 100 percent in bowling, but might come up short in other departments. ‘If you can bowl, that’s enough’ was his reply. That was a big boost and I was ready for the game.”

Meanwhile, all-rounder Imad Wasim praised Riaz on his skills and willpower to push through the game despite his injury.

“I shouldn’t be saying this, but there was a lot of debate on this issue. Wahab bhai played with a broken finger today. With that broken finger, he bowled today. He hit a six and a four, which was crucial for us. I salute him for doing this to Pakistan,” said Wasim.

Pakistan will play their next match against Bangladesh on Friday at Lord’s Cricket Ground. The Shaheens currently have +1850 odds to win the entire tournament.
