Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has provided an update on the rehabilitation of ace bowler Naseem Shah, who has been ruled out of action due to a shoulder injury.
The 20-year-old successfully underwent surgery on his injured shoulder last week. As per PCB, Naseem Shah remained absolutely stable during the operation and was discharged from the hospital the next day.
"He will be attended by two physiotherapists for his rehabilitation initially at the hospital and also later at the training ground and gym. During this entire period, he will be continuously monitored and the doctor who operated on him will see him again in the third week of October," the press release.
Remember, the injury had ruled out the right-armer from the ICC World Cup 2023. Shah is likely to stay out of action for three to four months due to the injury.
In the 46th over during Pakistan's second game against India at the Asia Cup 2023 last month, Naseem walked off the field on the reserve day organised for that game. Soon after, the PCB issued a press release stating that the right-armer had been ruled out of the rest of the tournament.
Shah suffered an injury to a muscle just below his bowling shoulder and is not a recurrence of any previous shoulder injuries.
