Shahnawaz Dahani will not be available for Sunday’s ACC T20 Asia Cup Super-4 match against India due to a suspected side strain. The injury happened while bowling in the match against Hong Kong in Sharjah on Friday.
As is the case with any suspected side strain injury, the medical team will monitor him for the next 48-72 hours, following which they will make decisions, including carrying out a scan and further participation in the tournament.
Moreover, his participation in the remaining matches of the tournament will be decided by team management once the MRI scans results reveals the true extent of his injury.
The team’s medical team will monitor his condition for the next 48 to 72 hours before taking any decision.
Dahani was part of the team’s playing XI in the earlier clash against India and Hong Kong.
Earlier, seamer Mohammad Wasim Junior had also been ruled out of the tournament before the national team started its Asia Cup campaign.
Meanwhile, fast bowlers Hasan Ali and Mohammad Hasain are also part of the team’s squad and remained on the bench so far. One of the two bowlers is likely to get an opportunity in the next match against India.
