Sajid to replace Abrar for Test series against Australia

Sajid to replace Abrar

Sources confirm Sajid to replace Abrar: Pakistani player Abrar Ahmed has been ruled out of the first Test against Australia due to an ankle injury.The decision on replacement will depend on the results of the MRI report.

According to sources, his participation in the second test is also doubtful. The decision was made to send left-arm spinner Sajid Khan to Australia in place of Abrar. The selection committee has unanimously chosen Sajid after consulting with the team management.

Once the travel documents are complete, Sajid will depart on the first available flight. Sajid is preferred as he has abundant left-handed batsmen in the Australian team and effective left-arm spin bowling. He has taken 22 wickets in seven Tests so far.

Sajid played his last Test match against Australia in March last year. The first test between Pakistan and Australia will be played in Perth on December 14.
