Pak may summon Junaid Khan after Irfan out of world cup
LAHORE (Web Desk) – Pakistan cricket team may call up the fast bowler Junaid Khan as a replacement for Muhammad Irfan, who is ruled out of the world cup due to hip injury, if the team wins quarterfinal against Australia.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), according to the sources, believes that the team needs a pacer lieu to the injured pacer. "Junaid Khan is the most suitable replacement".

Junaid was announced in the 15-man squad for the World Cup but injured his leg at a training camp and was replaced by Rahat Ali.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) earlier confirmed Irfan's injury.

"Irfan underwent an MRI scan on Monday afternoon and the radiologist's report showed a stress injury of the pelvis but was inconclusive," said a PCB release.

Brad Robinson, the Pakistan team's physiotherapist, ordered a more detailed scan, which was carried out Tuesday afternoon, and it reconfirmed a stress fracture in the pelvis.

"This injury rules Irfan out of the World Cup," said Robinson.

Pakistan cricket team captain Misbah-ul-Haq termed the loss of Muhammad Irfan at this critical stage a huge set back to the team.
