The defending champions Central Punjab suffered another set back as fast-bowler Hasan Ali suffered a groin injury in the second round of Quaid-e-Azam trophy.
Hasan Ali had just made a comeback after a long break due to back injury that kept him out of the game for 15 months. He felt the pain while bowling his sixth over of the innings. He didn’t come on the field in the second innings and is not expected to feature in the third round.
In the first innings, Hasan picked up two wickets for 36 runs.
Ali had previously announced that he was free from injuries after going through an extensive rehabilitation process.
“I have complete faith in my abilities and will once again try to serve my country. The last 15 months had been very hard for me. I had to work hard to get better. Recurring injuries however had caused more problems,” Ali had said.
