ICC technical committee approves Wahab's replacement Raees

Posted June 07, 2017

The ICC has confirmed that the Event Technical Committee of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 has approved Rumman Raees as a replacement player for Wahab Riaz.

Pakistan's injured paceman Wahab Riaz has been ruled out of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 due to his twisted ankle and probably for his worst performance, PSL-famed all-rounder Rumman Raees has been called in for the rest of the event.

"A scan has confirmed that Wahab Riaz suffered a deltoid ligament complex after an injury whilst bowling during the India v Pakistan match on June 4".

Raees admitted that India "executed their plans well" but believes that Pakistan will "do better" in the upcoming matches.

Rumman last played for Pakistan in April this year against West Indies; he played only one match and took one wicket.
