    Pakistan’s young fast bowler, Hasan Ali’s selection is doubtful for the upcoming Test against England as he has sustained an injury.

    The Men in Green, under the captaincy of Sarfraz Ahmed, will take on England at the historical venue of Lord’s from May 24th.

    Hasan Ali did not play the one-off Test match against Ireland, whereas, he featured in the two-day warm-up game against Leicestershire.

    However, it has been reported that Hasan Ali is struggling with an injury and he is likely to miss the first game of the two-match Test series.

    On a positive note, the left -arm Mohammad Amir has recovered from his knee injury and he is likely to lead Pakistan’s pace attack in the all-important contest.

    In absence of Hasan Ali, Rahat Ali will have to step up to the occasion, he bowled well against Ireland but remained wicket-less.

    Pakistan is likely to field the same playing XI that they played against Ireland in their debut Test.

    Based on Hasan's current performances not much difference to be honest whether he or Rahat played

    And thanks to the baffling decisions of selection committee, we don't have a "fallback" fast bowler.

    Injury fears for Hasan Ali ahead of England Test

    LAHORE: Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali is facing an injury scare ahead of Lord’s Test between England and Pakistan starting on May 24 (Thursday). The 24-year old injured his hand during the two-day warm-up match against Leicestershire during a catching attempt, the team management informed late Monday night. According to Pakistan team’s physiotherapist Cliffe Deacon, Hasan split the webbing between his thumb and index finger. The medical staff assessed the bowler and two stitches were given as a precautionary measure. Deacon added that he would try to keep Hasan from training on Wednesday (today) and give him a chance to get the superficial wound to heal. Dismissing rumours that Hasan might not be part of the squad that takes the field on Thursday, Deacon said that at this point he was available for selection.

    On the other hand, Mohammad Amir proved his fitness as Pakistan drew their final warm-up match on Monday. Amir was one of several first-choice players rested from the match against Leicestershire after suffering a recurrence of a longstanding knee problem. The problem recurred during Pakistan’s preceding five-wicket victory over Test debutants Ireland in Malahide, Dublin. According to team’s physiotherapist, Amir had tendon tendinitis, but he has been training and will be participating fully in the remaining training sessions. He added that Amir had hardly any symptoms left in his right knee and can be expected to make a full recovery ahead of the Lords’ Test. Pakistan will take on England in a two-match Test series on May 24 and June 1.
