ICC Champions Trophy 2017: Rumman Raees replaces injured Wahab Riaz in Pakistan squad

AP London 07 Jun 2017, 10:52:49 IST

Rumman Raees is joining Pakistan's ICC Champions Trophy squad in place of fast bowler Wahab Riaz. Riaz injured his ankle during Pakistan's 124-run defeat in Group B clash against India at Edgbaston on Sunday. The International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Tuesday that it had approved the 25-year-old Raees joining Pakistan's squad.

The left-arm quick has made only two ODI appearances for No.8-ranked Pakistan.


Pakistan next play South Africa at Edgbaston on Wednesday.

Riaz was ruled out of the rest of the June 1-18 tournament on Monday and will be out for at least two weeks. He conceded the most expensive figures in the Champions Trophy, 87 in 8.1 overs, in the loss to India.
