Pakistan opener Mohammad Hafeez was on Sunday precluded of the World Cup in the wake of anguish a lower leg damage, in yet an alternate hit to the group before the super occasion.
The 34-year-old endured the harm amid the second one-day worldwide against New Zealand in Napier a week ago and has been encouraged to take three weeks’ rest.
“Hafeez has been precluded of the World Cup and will return home with the first accessible flight and in his spot Nasir Jamshed has been summoned,” a Pakistan Cricket Board representative told AFP.
The most recent harm is the fourth real blow for Pakistan before the 14-group World Cup which begins in Australia and New Zealand on February 14.
Paceman Umar Gul was not chosen due to a knee damage in January, while an alternate quick bowler Junaid Khan must be withdrawn from the 15-man squad after he neglected to recuperate from a leg harm.
Spinner Saeed Ajmal withdrew from the squad after he neglected to amend his knocking down some pins activity which was considered illicit last September, despite the fact that the International Cricket Council said Saturday he had been cleared in the wake of retesting.
