Earlier on Sunday through a statement PCB explained that, “Pakistan T20I vice-captain Shadab Khan is also carrying a groin niggle, which limited his participation in Sunday’s net sessions to batting only. He had missed the Zimbabwe T20Is due to a similar injury and decision on his participation in the Auckland T20I will be made closer to the match.”

Meanwhile former skipper Javed Miandad has asked Pakistan to not let regular captain Babar Azam’s fitness effect them. Explaining his perspective the veteran said, “Babar is our key player. No doubt his absence will affect the team as he is [Pakistan’s] best performing player at the moment. However, the team should not get under pressure as there are 11 players in the team who all must have the confidence to perform for their country.”
