Abdul Rehman to miss Canada match
Abdul Rehman, Pakistan’s left-arm spinner, has been ruled out of World Cup match against Canada on Thursday after suffering a leg injury.
National team manager, Intikhab Alam said that Rehman sprained his leg while fielding in the match against Sri Lanka and had to put on a strapping in order to bowl. It’s an adductor muscle rupture.
“We don’t want to risk Rehman and will wait for him to recover”, said Alam.
Rehman’s absence is likely to mean a chance for
offspinner Saeed Ajmal.
Misbah-ul-Haq has also picked up a minor hamstring strain but isn’t too much of a concern.
