Left-handed middle-order batsman Haris Sohail has been ruled out of the ongoing tour of South Africa due to a right knee injury.
Haris was not available for selection for the Boxing Day Test in Centurion while he is also out of contention for the remainder of the tour due to the same injury.
The batsman will return home shortly while a replacement if any will be announced later. Sohail’s exclusion can turn out to be costly for Pakistan in the second Test.
PCB will set up Harris’ appointment (if needed) with the best orthopaedic surgeon recommended by the National Cricket Academy’s panel of doctors for further assessment, analysis and treatment.
Further updates on the matter will be provided in due course.
Sohail has represented Pakistan in 10 Tests, 26 ODIs and 9 T20s.
