In the eighth edition of the T20 World Cup, Pakistan had a very poor start. In the first two matches, the team had to face defeat against India and Zimbabwe. In such a situation, the hopes of going to the semi-finals were dealt a big blow but with a one-sided victory against the Netherlands, Pakistan still remain in the tournament and the next match will be played against South Africa. But before that the Pakistan team has got another big setback. Veteran batsman Fakhar Zaman has not been able to recover well from injury. That’s why he has been dropped from the upcoming match.

The big match between Pakistan and South Africa will be played tomorrow at the Sydney Cricket Ground. But before the match, the doctor of the Pakistan team provided important information to the press, in which he told that the team does not want to take the risk by playing Fakhar Zaman in the upcoming match. Although he has not suffered any kind of injury yet, he has not been able to fully recover from his knee injury. So he will have to sit in the match against South Africa. Fakhar Zaman suffered this injury 7 weeks ago during the Asia Cup, after which he recovered and made a comeback in the team but we do not want to take too much risk with him.
Fakhar Zaman played only one match for Pakistan in this tournament, in which he scored 20 runs in 16 balls against the Netherlands. Prior to that he had not played matches against India and Zimbabwe and now he will not be a part of the team’s playing XI against South Africa as well. It is very important for Pakistan to win this match. If South Africa wins this match against Pakistan, then Pakistan will be out of the World Cup.
