Injury ends Junaid Khan’s World Cup dream

Pakistan fast bowler, Junaid Khan, has failed to prove his fitness in a fitness test and as a result, he has been ruled out of the World Cup. Due to his thigh injury that he sustained in training, he was not picked in the squad that played against New Zealand. He had undergone a rigorous rehabilitation program at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore, but it did not help him to pass the fitness test. It may take him a couple of week to be recovered from injury. A replacement will be announced in the 15-man squad tomorrow.

His injury has come as a blow for the Pakistan cricket team. It is sure that his absence will make the bowling line up weak.
