Star Naseem Shah, a pace bowler for Pakistan, is most likely going to miss the opening few games of the eagerly anticipated ODI World Cup 2023, which is set to begin on October 5 in India.

Speaking about Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf’s injuries, Babar Azam expressed hope that the 20-year-old pacer would recover in the competition’s later stages.

“Although I have no idea how long recovery will take, I believe Naseem Shah will participate in the World Cup in the future. However, let’s wait and see.”

Babar Azam expressed optimism for Haris Rauf’s availability despite the PCB’s decision to keep Rauf on the team for the Asia Cup and not name Shahnawaz Dahani as his replacement.

“I won’t discuss our backup plan right now. Haris Rauf, however, is not doing too badly. He only has a minor side strain, but he is getting better in time for the World Cup, according to Babar.

It is noteworthy that both of the top fast bowlers were hurt during the Asia Cup’s Super 4s match against India at R. Premadasa Stadium due to rain.

The Men in Green suffered a major setback before the crucial game against Sri Lanka, where Pakistan lost by two wickets in an exciting contest.
