Fast-bowler, Wahab Riaz played a gem of an innings against Afghanistan to take Pakistan over the line alongside all-rounder, Imad Wasim. What made that innings from Wahab even more special is that that he hit a six and a four with a fractured finger.
Wahab, who was called in late for the World Cup squad, is determined to give his all for the team in the showpiece event. For that reason, despite his injury, the seasoned pacer will continue to attend training sessions ahead of the must-win match against Bangladesh.
"His injury is painful but Wahab has opted to continue training as he wants to play against Bangladesh. It's a must-win game for us and the team will need his experience," Raza Kitchlew, Pakistan team's media manager said.
Wahab suffered from a fracture while fielding in a training session prior to the clash against Afghanistan. But Pakistan opted to retain him in the playing eleven, hoping that the veteran will be helpful for his experience.
