CAPE TOWN: Injury woes of the Pakistan cricket team further worsened on Tuesday with opening batsman Nasir Jamshed now injured.

Before the start of the second test, Pakistan defeated the Cape Town Cobras in a practice match, however according to team manager Naveed Akram Cheema, Jamshed injured himself by spraining his heel and ankles during the game.

Cheema believed that as Jamshed’s medical reports were clear, he should be available for the second test which begins on February 14th.

Jamshed now joins the growing injury list of Pakistani players which also includes opening batsman Toufeeq Umar, fast bowler Junaid Khan and wicket-keeper Sarfaraz Ahmed.

Khan’s inclusion in the team for the next test is not confirmed yet, while fast bowler Rahat Ali is expected to make way for the tall paceman Mohammed Irfan.

Citing the teams growing difficulties and injury lists on the South African tour, the Pakistani team and management also offered sacrifice of a goat whose meat was given to the local Muslim population of Cape Town.
