Pakistani pacer, Mohammad Sami received a blow on his toe during first World T20 practice session at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, by a local bowler.

Mohammad Sami was sharpening his skills with the bat late during the training session when a delivery from a net bowler struck his toe. However, the injury doesn’t look threatening and he is expected to recover soon.

Pakistan’s media manager, Agha Akbar told media, “Mohammad Sami was hit by a delivery of a net-bowler while batting late in the training session,”

He went on to say, “According to the assessment by team physiotherapist Dr. Sohail Saleem, he is expected to fully recover from it in a couple of days,”

Pakistan’s expressed pace bowler was included in the Asia Cup T20 and World T20 squad after his impressive show with the ball taking 12 wickets in the PSL and injury to Rumman Raees, who was the first choice of the selectors.

Mohammad Sami didn’t perform as per the expectations in the recently concluded Asia Cup, he got just three wickets in the Asia Cup and performed pretty ordinary in the all important game against the hosts, Bangladesh during the tournament.

Pakistan is scheduled to start their World T20 tour on March 16th, however, the big occasion for the Green Shirts is on March 19th, where they will take on the arch rivals, India.
