Pak vs Eng: Big blow to Pakistan before ‘final’ against England, dreaded bowler Naseem Shah hospitalized

Karachi: Pakistan pacer Naseem Shah has been hospitalized due to a serious viral infection that will prevent him from playing in the fifth T20 International against England in Lahore on Wednesday. Naseem’s place in the playing XI for the fifth T20 International was almost certain but the youngster had to be hospitalized after his health deteriorated late on Tuesday night.

Although he is feeling better now, his participation in the remaining matches of the seven-match series is in doubt. “He was taken to the hospital due to viral infection, but is now feeling better,” the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said in a statement.

“He will not play tonight and any decision on whether to play the rest of the match will be taken on the advice of the medical committee,” the statement said. A source close to the team said that he has also been tested for dengue and his results are awaited. Dengue cases have increased significantly in the city since the last one month and thousands of people are falling prey to it every day.

Naseem played the opening match of the series but after that he was out of the XI in three matches. This 21-year-old bowler is also a part of Pakistan’s T20 World Cup squad. After playing four matches in Karachi, the teams of Pakistan and England have reached Lahore for the remaining three matches. The series is currently tied at 2-2.
