Pakistan’s young right-arm pacer Hasan Ali is doubtful for the upcoming Test series against the West Indies due to a groin injury that he suffered during the practice match while fielding against the President XI.

A press release from PCB revealed that the 23-year will have to go to rehabilitation session before the Test series to gain fitness.

The first Test of the series will commence from April 21 in Kingston, Jamaica. However, the board is confident that he will attain full fitness before the start of the series.

“On clinical assessment there is strain to one of his adductor muscles. He will undergo progressive rehabilitation to regain strength in the groin. Currently, we are confident that he will recover in time to be able to play in the Test series against West Indies. We will continue review his situation as he progresses through rehabilitation stages and give an update later when we are satisfied with his successful recovery or progress,” read a statement from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Hasan’s injury.

Hasan Ali has not worn the Whites for Pakistan, but he has been a key bowler for the team in limited-over cricket since Pakistan’s tour to England 2016.
