Pakistan ace fast bowler Haris Rauf who recently made his Test debut against England will miss the entire Test series due to a grade II quad strain.
The fast bowler got an MRI after rolling over the ball while fielding during the first day of the Rawalpindi Test.
The results of the scans and the following evaluation by the PCB medical staff indicated that the fast bowler had a grade-II strain.
Haris will travel to Lahore and begin his rehabilitation from injury at the National High-Performance Centre (NHPC).
Pakistan’s chances of reaching the ICC World Test Championship 2021–23 final have been weakened as a result of a defeat to England in Rawalpindi late on day five.
Pakistan’s loss is a serious setback even though England isn’t likely to make it to the World Championship final.
Pakistan would be eliminated if Australia or India wins their respective series.
India can now seal their position even if they lose one of the Tests against Australia at home, assuming they sweep Bangladesh, making them the favorites to advance to the WTC final as a result of Pakistan’s defeat.
Australia would still have a good chance of making the championship game if they win the final Test against the West Indies and at least two Tests against South Africa.
