The Pakistan cricket team has officially started its preparations for the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as it played the first practice game against Kent recently. The management aims to finalize the World Cup playing XI in the coming weeks as few spots are still up for grabs.
The illness of star all-rounder Shadab Khan has been a major setback in the preparations for the mega event as the youngster is a pivotal member of the limited overs side of Pakistan.
However, hepatitis specialist, Dr Patrick Kennedy, has finally given some good news to the fans as he revealed that Shadab would recover in time to take part in the World Cup starting from May 30th as there were also chances of him missing the World Cup.
The 20-year-old was diagnosed with Hepatitis C virus during the blood tests conducted by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) right after the announcement of squad on April 18th.
