Hassan Ali, the right-handed medium-pacer, has been ruled out of the renewed central contracts list disclosed by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Tuesday.
Hassan can no longer be the part of the team for the next five to six months following his injury. He sustained his injury on April 30th and consequently, can be sent for a check-up.
According to PCB, the bowler is feeling discomfort since April 30th and if necessary, he can be sent out of the country for treatment.
In the recently announced central contracts list, he was ruled out because he missed most of the cricket season since last year amid his back injury.
On the other hand, the duo of experienced pacers, M. Amir and Wahab Riaz have also lost their contracts.
Hassan Ali out for next 6 months amid injury
“The selectors have made the tough decisions to leave out Amir, Hasan, and Wahab but considering Hasan missed most of the season due to an injury and Amir and Wahab decided to focus on white-ball cricket, this was the right move.
“However, Amir and Wahab are senior and experienced bowlers and they remain in contention. We believe they can still contribute to the Pakistan men’s cricket team. Also, can mentor our young battery of fast bowlers,” Misbah said in the PCB’s press release.
