LAHORE: The discussions have commenced to explore potential replacements for the injured player Abrar Ahmed, according to sources.
There has been communication between the Pakistan team's director, Mohammad Hafeez, and chief selector Wahab Riaz regarding this matter.
The Pakistan team management is eagerly awaiting the MRI report on Abrar Ahmed's injury. The discomfort in his foot surfaced on the third day of the ongoing four-day match against Prime Minister's XI in Canberra.
Names such as Sajid Khan and Zahid Mahmood are under consideration as potential alternatives. A decision on the replacement will be contingent upon the findings of the MRI report.
