RAWALPINDI: Pakistan fast bowler Haris Rauf has been ruled out of the rest of the Test series against England with a thigh injury, the team’s management said on tuesday

The scans and subsequent assessment by the Pakistan Cricket Boad (PCB) medical staff concluded that the fast bowler suffered a grade-II strain, the board said in a statement.

Haris will soon travel to Lahore for rehabilitation at the National High-Performance Centre, the PCB shared.

On Monday, England beat Pakistan in the first of the three Tests by 74 runs. The second Test will be played in Multan from 9-13 December, while the third in Karachi from 17-21 December

England’s Memorable Victory In The First Test

England pulled off a stunning 74-run victory over Pakistan in the first Test on Monday, claiming the final wicket in rapidly fading light to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

The visitors amassed 657 in their first innings and declared their second on 264-7, setting Pakistan an improbable victory target of 343 on a docile track in Rawalpindi.

Pakistan fought Haris Rauf gamely and reached 268 before being dismissed in an absorbing final session, Saud Shakeel top-scoring for the hosts with 76.

Mohammad Rizwan made 46 and Azhar Ali scored 40 with an injured finger but they could only delay the inevitable.

Pakistan’s last pair of Naseem Shah and Mohammad Ali resisted for nearly nine overs before the former fell lbw to Jack Leach barely 10 minutes before the scheduled end of the play.
