PCB selectors left Nasir Jamshed from Sri Lanka tour

Injury has forced the Pakistan opener, Nasir Jamshed, to be ruled out of the squad that will travel to Sri Lanka next month. He has fractured his finger and will have to stay out of stadium for four to six weeks. PCB is yet to announce a name for the replacement. He was taken to the ODI and Twenty20 squad for the Sri Lanka tour.
He picked the injury during his club cricket match. Earlier it was thought to be a minor injury but later it was revealed to be a fracture.
After an absence of nearly three years, he made his return to the competitive cricket with the Asia Cup. He performed well at the tournament and scored one century against the arch-rival team India.
Though he made his ODI debut in 2008, he could so far play just 16 matches. Due to injuries and illness the 22-year-old player could not play more cricket matches.
