Shadab Khan ruled out of first test due to injury

ISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN (AP) — Pakistan sustained another injury setback when all-rounder Shadab Khan was ruled out for the first test against New Zealand due to thigh injury.

Khan suffered the injury after Pakistan beat New Zealand by four wickets in the third and final Twenty20 at Napier. “Shadab will now undergo MRI scans in Tauranga, following which a further update on the exact nature of the injury and time needed to return to competitive cricket will be provided,” the Pakistan Cricket Board said yesterday.
