Shadab Khan was ruled out from the series against England after a blood test revealed that he is affected by a virus and was asked to take complete rest. Shadab’s sudden illness caught everyone by surprise as the youngster looked completely fine from the outside.
In the latest development of his case, the root cause of his illness has been detected. It is learned that the leg-spinner had received dental care at a clinic in Rawalpindi a few days earlier and was treated by improperly sterilized dental instruments after which he was diagnosed with a viral infection.
The 20-year-old underwent treatment in London under the supervision of a specialized doctor and has returned home for another round of blood tests in Lahore over the next few weeks, which will determine his fitness for the World Cup.
