PSL 5: The youngest paceman to have a hat-trick in the test match, Naseem Shah of Pakistan has been advised to take rest for by the medical panel of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
The medical panel as an outcome of check-ups has reached a decision that Naseem should better be having rest than playing at least two beginning matches.
Naseem would probably not be available for the first two matches of PSL 5 of Quetta Gladiators. He is likely to miss the match against two times PSL winners, Islamabad United on 20th February and second match against Peshawar Zalmi on Saturday.
In a media chat, medicare panel of PCB has clearly defined that,
“The 17-year-old needed to nurse his injured ribs despite being given clearance last week,”
“Two-match rest will see him fit for the rest of the tournament.”
Naseem got rib injury after he got a mind-blowing hat-trick against Sri Lanka in the last concluded test match at Rawalpindi. At first, however, he was given clearance but now has been advised to take rest.
On the contrary, Naseem Shah got clearance with Hassan Ali, who was given clearance so that he can be a part of PSL 5 but the authority has been taken away from the youngest speed sensation so he could perform better in the further tournament.
