Babar Azam Ruled out from the Entire T20 Series Due to a Thumb Injury
The Pakistan cricket team has just started training after overcoming strict quarantine during the tour. Meanwhile, captain Babar Azam has been ruled out of the entire T20 series against New Zealand due to a thumb injury.
The Pakistan cricket team does not seem to be in danger on the New Zealand tour. Pakistan lost to captain Babar Azam before the start of the series. He is not playing in the whole series due to injury. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has confirmed that Babur will not be able to participate in any practice for the next 12 days.
In a statement, the PCB said, “Babar Azam, the world’s second-best T20 batsman, suffered a finger injury during a throw-down in practice. After the injury, he was taken to a local hospital where an X-ray showed a crack in his finger. Doctors will monitor him before the start of the test series.
Earlier, Imam-ul-Haq also got injured while throwing the ball. This time Babar wrote his name in the same list. The Pakistan team has already suffered a lot due to Corona. In the meantime, before the start of the series, one injury after another is being inflicted.
The short version of the series between the two countries will start with the first match on December 16 (Friday) in Auckland. The other two matches will be played on December 20 and 22 in Hamilton and Napier respectively. The Test series will then start on December 26 at the Oval.
