The 20 year Bowling allrounder Shadab Khan is declared fit for the upcoming World Cup 2019 at England.
The young player has missed the ongoing tournament with England after contracting a virus. His latest test results reflected zero viral load in his blood. After the test results, Pakistan Cricket Board has officially declared fit for World Cup.
The leg spinner will leave for London on Thursday 16 May 2019. Where he will consult a doctor on Friday 17th May, before joining the team in Bristol on Monday 20th May.
“I am delighted to know that the blood tests are negative and I can now return to competitive cricket. I was always very confident that I would fully recover from the viral infection and will be available for the World Cup. Having played and won the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, I understand the importance, flavor, and glamour of global events and what success in such events mean to the players and the public. I am looking forward to featuring in the World Cup and will leave no stone unturned in helping Pakistan put up a strong show. It has been difficult to stay away from international cricket and watch Pakistan play outstandingly – both in Cardiff and Southampton. As a professional cricketer, you want to be part of such games. In both the matches, Pakistan have shown their capability and ability, and I am sure with some fine tuning, we will be ready to take on the world.” – Shadab Khan
Pakistan will face their first match in World Cup against West Indies on 31st May 2019 at Trent Bridge Nottingham.
