Pakistan middle-order batsman Haris Sohail will undergo an MRI scan after feeling ‘slight pain’ in his right leg on Tuesday ahead of the England ODI series and will miss the upcoming two practice sessions.
Due to this same injury, Sohail had also missed the intra-squad practice matches last week and has already started his rehabilitation.
“Middle-order batsman Haris Sohail is still feeling slight pain in his right leg and, as such, he will not take part in the next two practice sessions scheduled on 5 and 6 July in Derby. Haris will undergo an MRI scan on 6 July in Cardiff, following which decision on his availability for the 8 July ODI against England will be made," the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said in a statement on Monday.
The Pakistan team is currently in the UK for the upcoming three-match ODI and as many T20I series against Eoin Morgan's England. The ODI series is slated to begin from July 8 at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff.
The second ODI between the two teams will be played at Lord’s in London on 10 July, that too in front of a full capacity crowd without social distancing. It will be after a year that Lord’s will be hosting a match at the full capacity crowd.
All the ticket holders will either have to provide proof of either full vaccination or a negative coronavirus test.
Third One-Day International between England and Pakistan is scheduled on 13 July at Edgbaston where 80% capacity crowd are allowed i.e about 19,000 spectators will be able to secure an entry to witness the match.
