‘Negligence’ on the Part of Abrar Ahmed Caused the Prolonged Harm, Medical Report
The prolonged injury of Pakistan’s mystery spinner Abrar Ahmed was a result of his constant negligence of the medical panel’s instruction, his medical report revealed.
Abrar was injured in Australia during the practice match against Prime Minister XI for the same reason and was ruled out of the entire three-match Test series.
A report stated that the spinner’s prolonged injury was the result of neglecting doctors’ instructions.
It further revealed that he has Sciatica — a condition that includes pain, numbness, or tingling in the leg.
As per the report, the spinner complained of pain in his right hip during the ICC World Cup 2023 in India. He was tested immediately after which he was diagnosed with Sciatica.
Upon diagnosing, the medical staff prepared a plan for the spinner to recover from the injury in which he was instructed to follow the restrictions on various exercises and drills.
The report stated that the 25-year-old did not follow the instructions after which the team management, once again, urged the spinner to follow the commands of the medical panel but nothing changed.
As per the report, Abrar got injured in Australia during the practice match against Prime Minister XI for the same reason and was then ruled out of the series completely.
Abrar bowled a total of 27 overs during the four-day practice match against the PM XI where he also picked up a wicket. At the end of the third day, he complained about feeling some discomfort in his right leg for which the MRI was done.
After some days, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirmed that the 25-year-old will miss the first two Test but prior to the commencement of the Sydney Test, Abrar was ruled out of the last match as well.
Abrar is currently continuing his rehab at Lahore’s National Cricket Academy (NCA) and will miss Pakistan’s five-match T20I series against New Zealand which will begin on January 12 in Auckland.
