Fakhar Zaman has been ruled out of Pakistan's upcoming T20 World Cup match against South Africa, after his knee injury aggravated.

PCB’s chief medical officer Dr Najeeb Soomro told the media in Sydney that the player and the management were aware of the risks of including him in the world cup squad.

“We know that Fakhar had a knee injury in Asia Cup about 7 weeks ago, he has been incredibly brave, resilient and has worked really hard to come back into the team, he had extensive rehabilitation and after which he made his way back into the team,” Dr Najeeb statement reads. 

"Obviously with any knee injury it takes time to have 100% recovery," Pakistan team doctor Najeebullah Soomro, said. "Fakhar and the team understood the risks of coming into the tournament and we got him in. You saw how he performed with batting in the last match, unfortunately in the last match he had a bit of a twist which aggravated his injury.

"We were aware of the risks of the comeback. He is obviously an important player for the team. The player, the medical staff, and the team management were aware of that. We decided to bring him back in. In cricket, and any sport, we take risks. Sometimes they pay off, sometimes they don't," he added.

Pertinent to note that Fakhar was the late addition to Pakistan's 15-player squad when he replaced legspinner Usman Qadir.
