World Cup 2023: PAK Hasan Ali Is Out of the Pakistan vs. South Africa Match; Mohammed Wasim Jr. Will Probably Take His Place
Fast bowler Hasan Ali's injury has severely hampered Pakistan's pace attack, which has been struggling in the current World Cup 2023. The match against South Africa is set for this Friday in Chennai. The cricket player missed the team's Thursday training session after it was reported that he had a fever.
Hasan Ali has been advised to take a break and give his recovery top priority in order to make sure he is fully fit for the tournament's remaining games, according to the Pakistan Cricket Board's medical panel. Given that Hasan Ali was called up to replace star pacer Naseem Shah, who was forced to withdraw from the ODI World Cup 2023 due to a shoulder injury, this development is a blow for Pakistan.
There is, nevertheless, a bright spot for the Pakistani team despite the disappointment. They were given good news on Wednesday when it was announced that Fakhar Zaman and Muhammad Nawaz would be able to play in the pivotal match against South Africa.
Pakistan is considering implementing some tactical adjustments to their lineup in an attempt to increase their chances of putting on a strong show. Imam-ul-Haq, the opener for the current World Cup who has shown mixed results, is probably going to be replaced by Fakhar.
Furthermore, it is possible that the gifted Muhammad Wasim Jr. will start in place of Hasan Ali in the starting lineup for the upcoming game. This choice demonstrates Pakistan's resolve to keep their advantage over other teams in the competition, even in the face of unforeseen difficulties.
Cricket fans are looking forward to the match between Pakistan and South Africa, but it will be unpredictable because Hasan Ali is a vital part of Pakistan's fast bowling attack.
