Pakistan leg-spinner Shadab Khan after recovering from the virus has departed for London where he will first consult a senior gastroenterologist and hepatologist before joining the country's squad for the Cricket World Cup.
Shadab Khan was declared fit for the World Cup after his latest test results reflected zero viral load in his blood, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced in a press release. The 20-year-old was last month withdrawn from Pakistan's squad for the one-off Twenty20 and five-match one-day series in England after the virus was found in his blood.
The 20-year-old before leaving for Pakistan requested his fans to keep praying and supporting him in achieving his goals while stating that he is working hard on his treatment. The leg-spinner, who is also a handy batsman low down the order, is seen as key for Pakistan's World Cup campaign, which starts with a match against the West Indies in Nottingham on May 31.
