NZ vs Pakistan, 2020-21 – Shadab Khan, Imam-ul-Haq ruled out of New Zealand tour

NZ vs Pakistan, 2020-21 - Shadab Khan, Imam-ul-Haq ruled out


Shadab Khan will also miss the upcoming home series against South Africa in January-February

Shadab Khan has been ruled out of the remainder of the New Zealand tour and from the upcoming home series against South Africa after being diagnosed with a high-grade injury to his left thigh. Batsman Imam-ul-Haq has also been ruled out of the ongoing New Zealand tour because of his left thumb fracture and he will fly back to Pakistan on Sunday.

Khan missed the ongoing first Test in Mount Maunganui with the same injury and MRI scans have confirmed a fresh tear in his thigh for which he has been advised six weeks of rest. He will, however, continue to stay with the squad in New Zealand.

Khan had earlier missed the home white-ball series against Zimbabwe in October-November with a groin injury, but had recovered in time for the New Zealand tour. The injury became worse during a tour game in Christchurch, but he was cleared to lead Pakistan in the T20Is after Babar Azam also fractured his thumb that made him miss the first Test too.
