Haris Sohail, a seasoned middle-order batsman, will not play in the forthcoming second ODI of the five-match series against New Zealand.

According to information, despite the medical staff’s best efforts, Sohail continues to have shoulder pain, which prevents him from playing.

It is unknown when the left-handed batter will return to the national lineup, but the insider expressed hope that he will play again soon.


The Men in Green’s physio and doctor will check the 34-year-old cricketer after the second match to assess the severity of his ailment. The national lineup for the next second game at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium is also expected to change one or two times with Sohail out of the starting XI.

According to the source, Usama Mir, a brilliant all-arounder, is anticipated to take the place of Shadab Khan, an accomplished player who has yet to make an impression in the series.

During a fielding practise before the first game, Haris Sohail landed awkwardly on his left shoulder and hurt himself.

Thanks to opening batsman Fakhar Zaman’s outstanding century, the Babar Azam-led team defeated the visitors by five wickets and now leads the series 1-0.
