Pakistan vs Australia 1st Test: Pakistani team is currently on Australia tour. Where Pakistan has to play a three-Test series under the captaincy of Shan Masood. But even before the series started, Pakistan’s star spinner Abrar Ahmed suffered a knee injury, due to which he has been ruled out of the first Test against Australia. Suspense was also created when he played in the last two test matches. Now PCB has announced the replacement of Abrar.

Abrar’s replacement announced

Pakistan Cricket Board said in the press release that despite the injury, Abrar Ahmed will remain with the team and will undergo treatment in Perth. It has not been said yet by PCB that he will not play in the last two Tests. According to the report of ESPNcricinfo, Pakistan has called Sajid Khan to Australia to strengthen the spin department.

Was injured in practice match

Abrar Ahmed had knee pain on the third day in the practice match, after which he left the field. He bowled only 8 overs. After this, his injury was revealed in the scan. Abrar had performed well for Pakistan on home grounds. He has taken 38 wickets in 6 test matches for Pakistan. If Abrar has to stay out of Test matches for a long time, the responsibility of leading the spin attack will fall on Noman Ali.

Strong performance in Quaid-e-Azam Trophy

Sajid Khan made his Test debut for Pakistan in 2021. He has taken 22 wickets in 7 test matches for Pakistan. He has performed well in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy. For this reason he has been invited to tour Australia. But his place in the playing eleven does not seem confirmed. Because Pakistan already has Noman Ali and Salman Ali Aga. Pakistan has not yet won the Test series against Australia. But this time Pakistan’s fast bowling attack is strong. Pakistan has bowlers like Shaheen Shah Afridi, Faheem Ashraf and Khurram Shahzad.
