According to ESPN Cricinfo, Haris Rauf, who made his Test debut in England, will not be able to play the second match against the Three Lions at Multan, which is scheduled to begin on December 9th, due to injury.
He was injured when he stepped onto the ball during the 1st Test against England. He didn’t play in the remainder of the match. He did not bowl in the first innings.
The Pakistan Cricket Board has not yet announced a replacement, but names such as Mohammad Wasim Jr., Hasan Ali, and Mohammad Abbas are being circulated, according to the report.
England showed its aggression in test cricket in the 1st test with a stunning 74-run win over Pakistan in Monday’s final session.
With eight wickets left on Day 5, Pakistan needed 263 runs. Pakistan was eventually dismissed for 268 by Ollie Robinson (4-50) and James Anderson (4-36). Pakistan lost its last five wickets after tea for only 11 runs.
Jack Leach took the wicket of Naseem Shaikh, trapping his leg just before the wicket. England had delayed the second ball for over an hour, with Anderson and Robinson doing the most damage with the old ball.
After Pakistan was placed at 257-5 heading into the final session, Ben Stokes’ relentless attack field tactics saw Pakistan fall. Robinson and Anderson then sliced through the lower ranks.
Robinson had already ended the almost four-hour-long defiance of Saud Shakeel, one of four Pakistan debutants, in the second session to a spectacular diving catch by KeatonJennings. The lefthander was the top-scoring with 76.
