Speaking at the toss in Bristol (During 3rd ODI), Sarfaraz Khan told Sky Sports: “We have good news about Shadab. He will be fit for the World Cup and we are excited to have him back.”
After the fitness test, Shadab khan said,
“I am delighted to know that the blood tests are negative and I can now return to competitive cricket,” Shadab told on his return. “I was always very confident that I would fully recover from the viral infection and will be available for the World Cup. Having played and won the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, I understand the importance, flavor and glamour of global events and what success in such events mean to the players and the public.
I am looking forward to featuring in the World Cup and will leave no stone unturned in helping Pakistan put up a strong show.
“It has been difficult to stay away from international cricket and watch Pakistan play outstandingly – both in Cardiff and Southampton. As a professional cricketer, you want to be part of such games. In both the matches, Pakistan has shown their capability and ability, and I am sure with some fine tuning, we will be ready to take on the world.”
Pakistan coach Mickey author hopefull that he will join the team before May 31. He said,
“Shadab’s inclusion also balances what a young but extremely talented squad is. I understand it will take Shadab some time to be back at his brilliant best as he has not played cricket for a few weeks, but our first game is on May 31 and he has got two weeks to regain complete form and fitness,” Arthur said. “He is a brave lad and the way he has fought back to regain fitness is a testament to his attitude and approach, which gives us the encouragement that he will be hopefully available for selection for our World Cup opener.”
