Earlier today, an important Pakistani leg spinner might be dropped from the World Cup 2019 squad as he has been diagnosed with Hepatitis.
According to sources, recent medical reports of Pakistani leg spinner Shadab Khan have suggested that he is suffering from Hepatitis and due to this recent development, the selection committee might consider dropping from the squad announced for ICC World Cup 2019. However, he is being reviewed thoroughly and will go through some more tests so the final decision can be made.
On the other hand, chief selector of Pakistan’s cricket team Inzamam-ul-Haq has confirmed the recent developments and said that this is some terrible news for us.
