Shadab Khan Ruled Out of Match Against South Africa Due to Injury

In the ongoing match between Pakistan and South Africa, Pakistan has made a concussion substitution for Shadab Khan. Usama Mir will step in as a replacement for Shadab.

Shadab suffered a head injury while fielding and initially continued to play. However, after a thorough evaluation by the Pakistan team’s medical panel, the decision was made to substitute him.

The match referee granted approval for the substitution.

In a crucial World Cup match that Pakistan must win against South Africa, star all-rounder Shadab Khan sustained an injury while fielding in an effort to save runs.

Shadab initially appeared to be in significant distress but ultimately left the field without needing a stretcher.

This incident took place as South Africa began their chase in the first over of the innings. Iftikhar was bowling, and on the second ball, Shadab, while fielding to prevent a run, suffered the injury.

Pakistan batted first but could only muster a total of 270 runs in 46.3 overs. Saud Shakeel and skipper Babar Azam both contributed with fifty runs each, which were pivotal in Pakistan’s innings.

The Proteas’ pursuit of the target of 271 runs has just commenced, and Pakistan must put up a strong bowling performance to defend the total in this crucial must-win game.
