Pakistan team’s bowling allrounder Shadab Khan would not provide his services in the remainder of the ongoing series of Pakistan versus South Africa and the Zimbabwe tour. Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) informed on Monday that the 22-year old had been sidelined owing to his toe injury.
Shadab Khan took a blow to his left toe while battling during the second ODI of Pakistan versus South Africa Johannesburg on Sunday.
“Shadab Khan has been ruled out from further participation on the South Africa and Zimbabwe tours after suffering a left toe injury while batting during the second One-Day International that has sidelined him for up to four weeks,” PCB stated in an official release.
“X-rays conducted following the match revealed an “intraarticular communicated fracture” though there is neither any displacement nor angulation. The injury will be treated conservatively and Shadab will undergo a four-week rehab,” it added.
Khan played well to help his side secure a three-wicket victory in the first ODI of their ongoing series against SA. He hit 33 off 30 balls. With the ball, he bowled eight overs, conceding 45 runs, although he went wicketless in the match.
In the second match, Khan couldn’t make any notable contributions, scoring only 13 runs off 24 balls and conceding 64 runs in nine overs. The visitors lost the game by 17 runs.
On a side note, the remainder of Pakistan’s South Africa tour comprises the final ODI of the three-match ODI series, scheduled for April 7, and a four-match T20I series that will commence on April 10 and conclude on April 16.
