Pakistanâs opening batsman Imam-ul-Haqâs participation in the upcoming two-match Test series against New Zealand is in doubt.
The left-hander, who is currently part of
the Shaheenâs squad, has suffered a fractured thumb while training which also
ruled him out from the only four-day match against New Zealand A.
The development was confirmed by the Pakistan Cricket Board in a press release issued on their website on Sunday.
The statement further confirmed that Imam
has been advised a 12-day rest in order to recover from the injury which also
put his participation prospect in doubt for the two-match Test series against the
Black Caps which will begin from December 26.
The Peshawar Zalmi opener has represented
the Men in Green in 11 Tests in his career where he has managed to score 485
runs at an average of 25.52, which included three fifties.
