KARACHI: Pakistan’s left-handed opener Imam-ul-Haq has been ruled out of the Karachi Test due to a hamstring injury, Pakistan captain Babar Azam confirmed on Friday.
Babar, while talking at the press conference ahead of the final Test, commented on Imam’s hamstring injury and confirmed that the latter will not be available for the final Test.
“Imam is suffering from a hamstring injury and he will not play tomorrow’s Test,” confirmed Babar.
The left-handed opener was seen limping off the field during the team’s training session, presumably feeling discomfort in his right hamstring.
Notably, Imam was taken to a local hospital in Rawalpindi for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans amid the second Test and did not bat at his usual batting position.
The left-handed opener, however, came out to bat at number five and scored an important half-century in the run chase, which went in vain as England sealed a dramatic victory to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
It is pertinent to mention that the final Test of the historic series between Pakistan and England will commence on December 17 here.
