PCB announces Wasim Jnr’s replacement for Asia Cup 2022

PCB announces Wasim Jnr's replacement for Asia Cup 2022

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has named out-of-form Hasan Ali as Wasim Jnr’s replacement for the team’s Asia Cup 2022 stint. Wasim has been ruled out following his side train. The young bowler complained of back pain on Thursday while bowling in net practice sessions. He was immediately taken to the hospital for an MRI scan.

While everyone anticipated the diagnosis reports and prayed for Wasim’s speedy recovery, they also wished that Hasan does not get named as his replacement. However, all that is expected from the medium-fast bowler now is to bounce back stronger, unlike his recent performances.

Wasim has been advised to rest, and his return to international cricket will be reassessed before the England tour of Pakistan. Concerning Hasan’s departure to the UAE, he will join the rest of the squad after Event Technical Committee’s approval.

Releasing a statement on Wasim’s injury, the PCB said,

“The findings were discussed with the PCB Medical Advisory Committee, while an independent review by a specialist physiotherapist was also sought,”

It must be noted Hasan is currently in Rawalpindi, preparing for the National T20 Cup starting on August 30th. He has been carrying on the rehabilitation process for the last three weeks. Hasan’s first task on his return to international cricket will be arch-rivals India, as Pak vs Ind is scheduled for August 28th, Sunday.
