The young Pakistani fast bowler Naseem Shah will not play in the remaining T20 International games against England due to pneumonia, according to medical reports. He will also remain hospitalised.
The 21-year-old was scheduled to play in the fifth T20I, but late Tuesday night the young man had to be admitted to the hospital after he complained of chest pain, breathing problems, and coughing.
The Pakistan Cricket Board announced on Wednesday that the medical team that would be keeping track on Naseem’s recovery will also recommend whether or not he should compete in a three-nation tournament in New Zealand that comes after the World Cup.
Naseem only participated in the first game of the seven-game series against England in Karachi before taking a break for the following three games.
