Right-arm fast bowler Naseem Shah, is diagnosed with high fever and is unlikely to participate in today’s game. Pakistan will face England for the 5th T20 match today in Lahore. Shadab Khan, an all-around player, is expected to break into the starting lineup.
The fifth encounter of the seven-match T20I series between Pakistan and England will take place at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. With the series tied at 2-2, both teams are likely to make some changes to their starting lineups.
The 19-year-old pacer was reportedly transferred to a hospital for treatment, where his Dengue test was also carried out. According to sources, he has a chest infection that has led to other problems.
Shadab Khan and Naseem Shah are expected to be in the starting lineup for the duration of the series, according to earlier statements from the national team management.
Because the management wanted him to recuperate before the tri-nation series in New Zealand and the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia, Naseem has only played in one of the four games.
In the just finished Asia Cup 2022 in the UAE, Naseem Shah made his T20I debut. There, he displayed exceptional bowling ability, collecting seven wickets in five games while maintaining an economy rate of 7.66.
