Pakistan on Thursday referred to as up batting all-rounder Mohammad Haris to exchange the injured Fakhar Zaman simply hours earlier than they face South Africa in Sydney with their T20 World Cup hopes on the road.
Haris, who may also bowl off spin and maintain wicket, was authorised as a alternative by the occasion’s technical committee after Zaman was dominated out of the match with posterior cruciate ligament injury in his proper knee.
The 21-year-old Haris has solely performed one T20 worldwide, towards England in Lahore in September.
He made seven runs opening the batting alongside captain Babar Azam and saved wicket as England cruised to an eight-wicket victory inside 15 overs.
Pakistan face South Africa on the Sydney Cricket floor later Thursday needing to win to maintain their faint hopes of reaching the semi-finals alive.
