Wahab ruled out of Champions Trophy due to injury

South African captain AB de Villiers

Pakistan's fast bowler Wahab Riaz has withdrawn from the remaining matches of ongoing Champions Trophy after injuring his ankle while bowling against India on Sunday.

Riaz injured himself during the opening game of Pakistan's Champions Trophy 2017 against India at Edgbaston.

The PCB has put in a request for a replacement player to the ICC Technical Committee. He was part of the team that played the T20I series against West Indies in 2016.

Rumman Raees has never played an ODI for Pakistan. It was no doubt a miserable match for Wahab, as he was hugely expensive, he gave away 87 runs in 8.4 overs, ended when he fell in his delivery stride and sustained an injury that saw him leave the field. Speaking to The Express Tribune, Raees said: "It is a great opportunity for me to make my mark in the team".

"I always wanted to bowl to the top batsmen in the world which includes de Villiers, who is a risky batsman", he added.

"I always wanted to bowl to the top batsmen in the world which includes de Villiers, who is a risky batsman, Kohli and Dhoni, who are also two of the best batsmen of modern cricket", he said.

The 30-year-old middle order batsman, who made his worldwide debut in 2006, was dismissed for nought against the South Africans as Sri Lanka lost their Group B opener by 96 runs. He has an impressive record in List A cricket where he has picked up 64 wickets in 42 matches at an economy rate of 4.77.

Pakistan face South Africa at Edgbaston today and need to win the match by a big margin to move one position ahead in the points table.
