He will have scans in Tauranga on Thursday
The PCB has confirmed that the allrounder complained about the pain in his left thigh and the initial assessment is that he won’t be available for selection for at least seven more days. He will have scans in Tauranga on Thursday to decide on the recovery and rehabilitation period.
Gohar, meanwhile, has already joined the Test side, travelling in from Hamilton, where he was preparing for the Shaheens’ T20 against the Northern Knights on Sunday. He was added to the touring party after a productive 2019-20 Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, where he was the third-most successful bowler with 38 wickets, including five four-wicket hauls and one five-wicket haul for Central Punjab.
Gohar, 25, made his international debut in an ODI in 2015, in England, but hasn’t played for Pakistan since. He was in line for a Test debut when just 20, back in 2016, during the Test series in the UAE against England. But after being called up to replace the injured Yasir Shah, Gohar reached the Lahore airport only to sleep through the departure announcements. He has so far taken 144 wickets in 39 first-class matches, at an average of 28.56.
