Due to an injury sustained in a match against India, star middle-order batter Salman Ali Agha is most likely going to miss the upcoming Super 4s match against Sri Lanka.

In the course of the chase for 357 runs against the neighboring nation, the 24-year-old cricketer was struck on the nose by a vicious delivery while sweeping the ball.

After the national team suffered a 228-run defeat, the all-rounder was taken to a hospital in Colombo, where he was kept under close observation for a protracted period of time.

For Pakistani cricket fans, there is a glimmer of hope, though, as sources have reported that he has been feeling better since the incident.

According to reports, Saud Shakeel could take Salman Agha’s place in the middle of the order if the medical board decides he can’t play against Sri Lanka.

Two crucial pacers, Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah, were ruled out for the remainder of the tournament, dealing a serious blow to the Babar Azam-led team.

Zaman Khan and Shahnawaz Dahani have also been named by the management as backups who will join the national team for a game against Sri Lanka that must be won.

It is important to note that the Green Shirts’ final Super 4s match will be against Sri Lanka on September 14 at the R. Premadasa Cricket Stadium.
