Canberra : On the third day of the four-day warm-up match against the Prime Minister’s XI, Pakistani leggie Abrar Ahmed experienced discomfort in his right leg.

The 25-year-old was consequently removed from the field.

“Abrar was sent for an MRI after he complained. After the medical panel reviews the MRI reports, more information will be released as appropriate, according to a statement from PCB.

With the Prime Minister’s XI in the game, Abrar has bowled 27 overs in total. The four-day match was arranged as a prelude to Pakistan’s three-match Test series against Australia, which is slated to begin on December 14 and end on January 7, 2024.

The Prime Minister’s XI was 24 runs behind the tourists at Manuka Oval at stumps on day three of the match after reaching 367 for 4 in their opening innings. Play on the final day was almost guaranteed to end in a draw. Shan Masood, the captain of Pakistan, added 45 extra runs to his score after finishing the night at 156, marking his third first-class double hundred. With 14 boundaries and a maximum in his final 298 deliveries, he amassed an undefeated 201.

After Nathan McSweeney’s direct hit put Khurram Shahzad out of the game, Pakistan declared the innings, with the scoreboard showing 391-9 in 116.2 overs.

With a composed century in the tour match against Pakistan, Matt Renshaw increased his prospects of being called up for a Test recall and raised the stakes for who will succeed David Warner after he departs. With an undefeated 136, the 27-year-old outscored other candidates for the soon-to-be vacant Australia Test opener’s position.

First-choice fast bowlers Shaheen Shah Afridi, Hasan Ali, and Mohammad Wasim had been rested by Pakistan, while spinner Abrar left the tour match on Friday due to what looked to be a calf muscle injury.
