The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has issued an update about the injuries of pacer Shahnawaz Dahani and wicket-keeper Mohammad Rizwan, saying that “both have shown improvement.”

During the ongoing Asia Cup 2022, the Pakistan cricket team faced fitness issues which troubled the management and combination. Earlier, Shaheen Afridi was ruled out of the tournament due to injury, while later Shahnawaz Dahani and Mohammad Rizwan sustained injuries.

According to the PCB, pacer Dahani has shown signs of improvement and the medical team is monitoring him continuously.

Updating about Rizwan’s injury, the PCB spokesperson said that he is also feeling better, but further decisions will be made after he gets his MRI scan report tomorrow.

WHO WILL REPLACE RIZWAN: Rizwan injured his knee during clash with India on Sunday and underwent an MRI scan.

A medical team will decide if he will continue playing in the tournament after his report comes.

Meanwhile, Espncricinfo, on its website, reviewed players who can replace Rizwan as a wicket-keeper.

It said Pakistan lacked a specialist wicket-keeper. Khushdil Shah and Fakhar Zaman can do Rizwan’s job, however, they are not specialists.

The second choice could be Mohammad Haris, who was with the squad on its tour to the Netherlands. However, Haris is not currently on the Asia Cup squad.
