Pakistan Observer - - SPORTS -

ISLAMABAD— The MRI re­port of opener Mo­ham­mad Hafeez in­jury has been found to be sat­is­fac­tory af­ter which the player’s visit to Eng­land for treat­ment has been called off.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, the MRI scan re­port has come out sat­is­fac­tory af­ter which the player has cancelled his visit abroad for treat­ment. Pak­istan Cricket Board ( PCB) has handed over Hafeez’s case to the team’s phys­io­ther­a­pist. How­ever, the player would be re­ex­am­ined af­ter one week.

How­ever a PCB of­fi­cial when con­tacted dis­carded all such re­ports and said that Hafeez’s MRI re­port has yet to come. “If Hafeez re­port comes un­sat­is­fac­tory then he will be go­ing to Eng­land for the knee treat­ment and his par­tic­i­pa­tion will also be in doubt for the se­ries against the English team,” he said.

“The knee mus­cu­lar prob­lem Hafeez is suf­fer­ing from is best treated in Eng­land,” he said.

Hafeez had missed the two- week fit­ness train­ing camp or­ga­nized by PCB at Kakul. The chief se­lec­tor In­za­mam ul Haq named Hafeez, the vet­eran of 47 Tests, 177 ODIs and 77 T20s, in the 21- prob­a­ble play­ers list for a week- long skills camp for the tour of Eng­land.

Pak­istan will tour Eng­land in June for four Tests, five ODIs and a one Twenty20. The first Test will kick off on July 14.— APP
