Pakistan management is banking on the full fitness of the leg-spinner Shadab Khan so that he makes it to the ICC World Cup. An integral member of Pakistan’s limited overs side, he was diagnosed with a Hepatitis C virus soon after the announcement of the Pakistan squad for the World Cup.
Pakistan’s chief-selector, Inzamam-ul-Haq has provided an update on Shadab’s recovery stating that the doctor's reports are very encouraging and positive so far. The leg-spinner will undergo further tests in coming days and Inzamam hoped that they all come right.
Shadab was ruled out of the ongoing limited-overs series against England and was replaced by fellow spinner Yasir Shah. Pakistan will kick off their World Cup campaign against the West Indies in Nottingham on May 31.
