KARACHI: Pakistan’s left-handed opener Imam-ul-Haq walked off from the national men’s team’s ongoing training session ahead of the Karachi Test of the historic home series against England.
According to the details, Imam, who had been suffering from a hamstring injury, walked off from the team’s training session.
The left-handed batter was seen limping back to the dressing room after 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.
The Karachi Test is likely to be Pakistan veteran batter Azhar Ali’s last international match as the 37-year-old announced his retirement from red-ball cricket in a press conference here today.
