Ahmed Shahzad to play in match against India


Adelaide: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday announced that X-ray of Ahmed Shehzad came out clear and the opener would be ready to play before important match against India.

In training on the indoor nets at Adelaide Oval on Friday morning, while batting Shehzad received a glancing blow to his right forearm on a fast bowler’s delivery.

“It looked like a bruise from the outset but as a precaution, Team Pakistan physiotherapist Brad Robinson thought it was prudent to get an X-ray done, which came out clear, PCB spokesman said.

“Shehzad is receiving the necessary treatment from the team physiotherapist, and it is most likely he would take part in training Saturday ahead of the Pakistan-India encounter,” he added.

Struggling with injury problems, Pakistan cricket team will play its first match of the World Cup against archrival India on Sunday at Adelaide Oval.
