Update on Shadab Khan’s injury ahead of PSL

Pakistan Cricket Team’s vice-captain, Shadab Khan, has been out of action from international cricket as he was granted No-Objection Certificate for Big Bash League (BBL). While the player was not part of the Test series versus New Zealand, he missed the One-Day Internationals too on suffering an index-finger injury during Australia’s T20 league.

After suffering the fracture, the leg-spinner could not get his name in the ODI squad. However, he has been advised to rest for three weeks, and will be seen donning a red jersey in the eighth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL 8).

A source on Twitter penned out,

Shadab Khan was advised to rest for three weeks; he’ll be utterly fit before HBL Pakistan Super League and will lead Islamabad United from the very first match, as confirmed by GM Rehan Ul Haq.

Moreover, Saeed, who is the assistant coach of PSL franchise Islamabad United, confirmed Shadab’s availability in the marquee tournament. He said that Babar Azam’s deputy would recover within a month to render his services to Sherus.

It is pertinent to mention that PSL 8 is tentatively to kick-start from February 13th. The official schedule is yet to be revealed.
