Another challenge for Pakistan as one more player gets unfit in Srilanka
Pakistan cricket team faces a significant challenge ahead of their upcoming match against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2023 as Salman Ali Agha’s participation is doubtful due to an injury he sustained during the Pakistan-India clash.
Agha was struck in the face when he top-edged a sweep off Jadeja during the Super 4 match of the Asia Cup 2023. Post-match, he was taken to the hospital where his nose was treated. Despite his condition improving, Agha’s face remains swollen, casting doubt on his ability to participate in the forthcoming match against Sri Lanka.
In light of these developments, Saud Shakeel is likely to replace Agha in the playing XI. Shakeel’s potential inclusion could provide a fresh dynamic to the team, even as they grapple with the absence of Agha’s batting prowess.
Further increasing issues for Pakistan are concerns over the fitness of Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah.
