LAHORE: Pakistan’s fast bowler Wahab Riaz will not be seen any further in the Champions Trophy, after injuring his ankle while bowling against India on Sunday.
A scan has confirmed that Wahab suffered a deltoid ligament complex after an eversion injury mechanism whilst bowling during the India vs Pakistan match on June 4. Wahab will need two weeks to recover.
Wahab, who returned the most expensive figures in the Champions Trophy with 87 off 8.1 wicketless overs against India, twisted his ankle in his follow-through in the 46th over of the innings.
