Cardiff, July 8 (MNN) Pakistan middle-order batsman Haris Sohail has been ruled out from the tour of England due to a hamstring injury.

An MRI conducted here on Wednesday revealed a grade-three tear injury, which he had picked up during a training session in Derby last week.

The Pakistan Cricket Board medical panel advised the left-handed middle-order batsman to undergo a four-week rehabilitation programme before a reassessment is carried out.

Haris — selected for the One-Day Internationals only — will return to Pakistan to undergo rehabilitation at the National High Performance Centre in Lahore.

Sohail said: “I was keenly looking forward to the ODIs as part of my objective to contribute in the side’s success and also cement my position in the side. In this background, I am disappointed that my tour has been cut-short, but I will return to Lahore and undergo a rehabilitation programme so that I can fully recover for the 2021-22 season.”

A three-match ODI series between Pakistan and England will commence later on Thursday, followed by three T20Is on July 16, 18 and 20.

Pakistan will later depart for the West Indies on July 21 to play five T20Is and two Tests from July 27 to August 24.
