Fakhar Zaman ruled out of match against Australia due to Knee injury. Opening batsman Fakhar Zaman will not play in Pakistan’s World Cup match against Australia at Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium tomorrow (Friday) due to a “knee injury.”

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) released a statement saying, “Fakhar Zaman is being treated for a knee injury, and he is expected to be available for selection next week.”

The board also disclosed that Agha Salman was recovering from a fever that he suffered after training the previous day.

A day after a fever scare was reported from the Pakistani camp, Salman’s fever news breaks.

Except for Muhammad Haris, practically all of the players were spotted rehearsing in Bangalore on Wednesday in preparation for the team’s October 20 World Cup matchup against Australia.

After getting unwell earlier, Haris was told to take it easy, while other players were observed working hard in the ground, rehearsing.

Six Pakistani players “missed” Tuesday’s optional training session at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

Along with traveling reserves Zaman Khan and Mohammad Haris, the six players who missed today’s training session were Abdullah Shafique, Mohammad Rizwan, Shaheen Afridi, and Salman Ali Agha.

The athletes who showed signs of a fever were evaluated right away in accordance with the team’s medical policy. In compliance with the safety protocols, every player underwent a COVID-19 test and a screening for dengue fever symptoms.

Team sources have stated that there is no cause for concern over the health of the Pakistani players.

Pakistan has so far won two of their three games at the tournament; their lone loss came on Saturday against India, their bitter rivals.
