Shadab Khan Ruled Out Of Series Against England
Wrist spinner Shadab Khan has been ruled out of the series against England after tests revealed a virus that will require treatment and rest for, at least, four weeks. The series against England, comprising a T20I and five ODIs, will be played from 5 to 19 May.
The spinner Shadab Khan was all ready to represent Pakistan in the series but an unfortunate event had led him to leave this dream behind and go for the treatment.

Details about Shadab’s replacement will be announced in due course.
The selectors have already included Asif Ali and Mohammad Amir as additional players to the 15-player World Cup squad. Mohammad Amir was one of the best decision to be included in the International Cricket Council upcoming World Cup 2019 squad.
Pakistan, like any other participating side, has the flexibility to make changes to their World Cup squad until 23 May.
