Pakistani opener Taufeeq Umar will be coming back home from South Africa after injuring his leg during a training session. The tour management has called for Imran Farhat as his substitute.
Taufeeq Umar who tore a leg muscle during a training session before the warm-up match in East London wouldn’t be able to recover in time to take further part in the series about to commence with the 1st test beginning from February 1.
Even though his experience would be missed on the bouncy tracks in South Africa, it could be a benefit in disguise for Nasir Jamshed who’s tipped to be included in the starting line-up for the 1st test. If included in the final 11 Nasir Jamshed will be making his test debut after some consistent performances in the ODI format.
