Naseem Shah’s injury: Update
The young pacer had surgery in the UK after being injured in the Asia Cup in September. He stayed in the UK for two months for rehabilitation and initial training after the surgery because the PCB covered his medical costs and provided expert medical care.
“Naseem is being rehabilitated at NCA, Lahore, by a strength and conditioning coach, physiotherapist, and doctor. He is doing light gym exercises and partial bowling practice and will bat tomorrow.
Islamabad United acquired Quetta Gladiators’ top pacer, Naseem, in a major trade. Naseem’s departure from Quetta sparked debate among cricket fans, and every PSL team tried to sign him. Quetta now has Islamabad’s first-round Platinum pick and the latter’s third-round. There were rumours that Naseem might join Multan Sultans, who recently acquired Iftikhar Ahmed or Peshawar Zalmi, but Islamabad won the race to sign the pacer.
