Haris Rauf ruled out of England test series

Pakistan fast bowler Haris Rauf has been ruled out of the remainder of the Test series against England*. The 29-year-old, who made his debut in the first test of the series had stepped on the ball while fielding on the first day of the first test which led to a grade 2 strain in the right quad. He was taken for an MRI scan and did not bowl again for the rest of the game. He endured a forgettable debut, conceding 78 runs in 13 overs, and was the most expensive fast bowler on the first day when England scored 506 runs.

Rauf will now travel to Lahore where he will begin his rehabilitation at the National High-Performance Centre. With the unavailability of Haris Rauf and Shaheen Shah Afridi, the Pakistan board is yet to announce a replacement for the remainder of the series.
