Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf got injured in the match against India, and it seems like they are out of the rest of the Asia Cup. Both of these strike bowlers for Pakistan. The men in green rely on them to take wickets. Naseem takes the wicket with the new ball, and Haris Rauf contains the rivals in the middle and death overs. This isn’t good for Pakistan.
Back-Up Arrivals: Shahnawaz Dahani and Zaman Khan
In the middle of the confusion, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) intervened quickly by calling stand-in players Shahnawaz Dahani and Zaman Khan.
However, it is critical to note that the PCB’s decision does not rule Rauf and Naseem out of the competition.

The PCB is keeping a close eye on their rehabilitation. PCB’s medical panel will be working hard for their return.
“This is merely a precaution to ensure the players’ fitness and well-being before the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup next month.” Haris and Naseem will continue to be monitored by the team’s medical personnel. Only if Naseem or Haris are ruled out for the next seven days would the team management request a replacement from the ACC technical committee.”PCB issued a statement emphasizing their cautious approach
As cricket fans, we are eagerly awaiting additional developments. Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah’s participation in the Asia Cup 2023 remains doubtful as the PCB watches their improvement.
Pakistan’s chances in the competition are in jeopardy as they deal with the consequences of major player injuries.
The cricketing world waits for these brilliant fast bowlers to return to the field.
