Fakhar Zaman Doubtful For Pakistan’s First Test Against South Africa

Written by Vipin Darwade

Pakistan batsman Fakhar Zaman aggravated a knee injury he picked up last month, meaning he is a doubt for the first Test against South Africa set to begin next month.

The PCB expects the 28-year old opener to be out for “three to five” weeks, making his participation in the Boxing Day Test in Centurion unlikely.

Fakhar reportedly complained about pain in his right knee after engineering a run-out during the second T20I against Australia in October.

He will meet the PCB’s medical team at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore on Tuesday to chalk up a plan for his recovery.

Pakistan will play three Tests, five ODIs and three T20Is during their tour to South Africa.
