Pakistan’s right-hand bowler Hasan Ali has suffered another injury ahead of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy (QeA) 2020-21.
According to the details, Hasan Ali, 26, will not participate further in the remaining matches of the tournament.
He didn’t come to bowl in the second innings of Central Punjab’s fixture against Northern. He has taken five wickets in three innings of the tournament.
Earlier, he had undergone scans at a local hospital in Karachi. The results will further help in assessing his chances of participating in the remaining matches of the QeA Trophy.
If he is unfit, he might be ruled out of the Peshawar Zalmi squad for the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season five knock-out stage, scheduled to start from November 14.
Previously, he had suffered a back injury while playing a Quaid-e-Azam Trophy match in Lahore last year which kept him out of play.
After going through a rehabilitation process at the National Cricket Academy, he was declared fit to play in the final of the tournament.
However, he suffered a rib injury again while playing in the final, sidelining him for another six weeks.
Moreover, in 2017, Hasan Ali had been named man of the tournament for his exceptional bowling throughout the tournament.
He finished as the highest wicket-taker with 13 wickets including 3 in the final against arch-rivals India.
The batsman was not part of Central Punjab’s squad for the National T20 Cup but made his comeback before QeA Trophy and managed to play only two matches.
