Hasan Ali will miss the first of the three T20Is against England as a precautionary measure after picking up a strain in his left leg during a training session at Trent Bridge on Thursday. PCB have announced Hasan’s unavailability on the morning of the first game.
Hasan played the three ODIs against England where he returned a five-wicket haul in the second game. It was his first ODI five-fer since 2017 after having had been set back by a back injury that ruled him out for over a year. He was then hit by a groin injury on return, forcing an absence that extended 20 months.
A decision on the pacer’s further availability will be made after assessments ahead of the second T20I. The first match of the three-match series will be played on Friday (July 16).
