Just In: Pakistan’s ace pacer Haris Rauf will miss the remaining two tests of the ongoing series against England following strain in his right quad, PCB confirms. However, the cricket board hasn’t named any replacement for the injured Rauf.

According to the PCB’s official statement, “A grade-II strain in the right quad has ruled Haris out of the ongoing test series against England. The pacer underwent an MRI after sustaining an injury during the first day’s play and subsequent assessment by Medical Panel concluded the bowler suffered a grade-II strain.”

Haris, who took his test debut wicket on the first day of the test, hurt his right quad while trying to stop a boundary and rolled over the ball, resulting in a fatal injury. After the initial assessment, the 29-year-old bowler pulled off the field.

Later, the team of Doctors performed detailed Scans and MRIs on Rauf, concluding that the spearhead bowler sustained grade-II strain in his right quad. Now Haris will travel to Lahore to begin his rehabilitation at the National High-Performance Centre.

Men in Green have staked their chances of making it to the ICC World Test Championship final after being humiliated by England by 74 runs on the fifth day of the first team at Rawalpindi. They have also received terrible news regarding an injury of their mainstream bowler.
