Naseem Shah refutes injury reports, confirms full fitness

Naseem Shah, the swift-paced bowler representing Pakistan’s cricket team, has disclosed that his absence from the match against Galle Titans was a conscious choice and not due to any injury. He made the decision to prioritize rest and rejuvenation. Naseem Shah asserted that he is in excellent form and fully prepared for the upcoming series against Afghanistan.

Setting the record straight, Naseem Shah elaborated that he communicated his need for a break to his team, the Colombo Strikers, and they mutually agreed to his request. This contrasts with the previous statement by team captain Chamika Karunaratne, who cited Naseem Shah’s shoulder ailment as the rationale for his non-participation.

The forthcoming series slated between Pakistan and Afghanistan is scheduled to take place in Sri Lanka from August 22 to August 26. Numerous Pakistani players are already in Sri Lanka for the Lanka Premier League (LPL). Additionally, considering that some matches of the Asia Cup are also scheduled to be held in Sri Lanka, Pakistani players aimed to familiarize themselves with the playing conditions in the region.
