Pakistan squad faces a setback in South Africa

CAPE TOWN - Pakistan squad faces a set back in South Africa ahead of the second Test against South Africa.Left-handed middle-order batsman Haris Sohail has been ruled out of the ongoing tour of South Africa due to a right knee injury.

According to details, Sohail requires a further three to four weeks to make a recovery and thus will not be able to take part in the upcoming second and third Tests against the Proteas.

The left-hander was all set to feature for Pakistan in the series opener at Centurion before pulling out on the morning of the first day with a knee injury.

The batsman will return home shortly while a replacement if any will be announced later. Sohail’s exclusion can turn out to be costly for Pakistan in the second Test.
