PCB Selected Zaman Khan and Shahnawaz Dahani as Backups for Injured Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf

Due to injuries sustained during the Super 4s match against India, Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf were forced to withdraw from the ongoing Asia Cup, dealing a severe blow to Pakistan.

Now that both of the team’s top fast bowlers will be absent from the crucial match against Sri Lanka, the management will have to bolster the squad with their backups.

According to representatives of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Zaman Khan and Shahnawaz Dahani have been chosen by the management as back-up players for the remaining games.

The Kashmir-born pacer has played for the national team in only six T20Is, taking four wickets. He has yet to make his 50-over cricket debut for the Green Shirts.

While playing for the Men in Green for the past two years, Shahnawaz Dahani has only appeared in two ODIs and claimed one wicket.

In response to the change, head coach Grant Bradburn stated, “We are taking a precautionary approach with Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah. We’ll evaluate them tomorrow.

In response to a query about why Haris and Naseem shouldn’t be sent out to bat, Bradburn stated that doing so risked aggravating their injuries.

The Babar Azam-led team lost by 228 runs in their second Super 4s game, and on September 14 they will play Sri Lanka in their final Super 4s game.
