    ISLAMABAD: Seasoned pacer Wahab Riaz will continue training with the Pakistan team despite suffering from a fractured finger. Raza Kitchlew, Pakistan team’s media manager, said that Wahab would continue to attend the team’s training sessions in the lead up to Pakistan’s last group match – against Bangladesh – at Lord’s on July 5, a private news channel reported.

    “His injury is painful but Wahab has opted to continue training as he wants to play against Bangladesh. It’s a must-win game for us and the team will need his experience,” he said. Pakistan spent Sunday traveling from Leeds to London, which is a five-hour journey by road.

    They had a rest day on Monday and will resume training on Tuesday at Lord’s. Wahab suffered from a fracture while fielding in a training session at Headingley on Tuesday. But Pakistan opted to retain him in the playing eleven, hoping that the seasoned pacer will help lift them in the do-or-die encounter.

    Wahab didn’t disappoint as he took two key wickets to help Pakistan restrict Afghanistan to 227-9 and played an even important role with a 9-ball 15 that enabled Pakistan to win the match after a very tense run-chase.

    The 34-year-old left-armer will bowl during some of the pre-match training sessions but is unlikely to attend the fielding drills in order to shield his fractured right hand from further aggravation.

    The guy hit the most crucial six with a fracture. All other batsmen should be put to shame by that.

    That is what i said recently.Had he been a better bowler, he would have been an ideal candidate, coz he's a fighter and also knows how to communicate.Unfortunately Wahab wont find a place in Pak test team and even in OD team he wont last long.

    Wahab is here to stay for another 2 years. Best to make use of him as a pinch hitter next game. He's got that fire in his belly. Nearly won Pakistan the game vs Australia and finished it off vs Afg. Good player

    Despite his inconsistencies and low points, he’s got passion and aggression. Great fast bowler mentality and that’s what I like about him, and his batting is a benefit to us too

    I lost a bit of interest in cricket over some time period. So this World Cup made me get that passion back again. Its unfortunate we exited so soon. I was really hyped for this team in the end.
