Before the white-ball series against Australia, Shadab Khan was unable to recover full fitness. The great spinner is expected to miss the first few games of the crucial home series.
Shadab Khan is still recovering from his injury, according to reports, despite the fact that the first ODI between Pakistan and Australia is only two days away. While the leg-spinner is the most important bowler in Pakistan’s lineup, given the efficacy of spin-bowling in home conditions, his absence may be disastrous.
Shadab Khan is expected to undergo another fitness test, although he is unlikely to be available for the first ODI. In February, the renowned spinner suffered a groyne injury while playing for Islamabad United in PSL 7.
Muhammad Nawaz, on the other hand, had already been ruled out of the limited-over games due to his inability to heal from a foot ailment.
Pakistan will play Australia in three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and one Twenty-20 International (T20I) at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. The first 50-over match is set to begin on March 29.
