Pakistan Cricket Star Naseem Shah Successful Shoulder Surgery


Pakistani fast bowler Naseem Shah has successfully undergone surgery to address a shoulder injury, which had already forced him out of disagree for the ICC World Cup 2023, scheduled to kick off in India.

Moghees Sheikh, Naseem Shah’s manager, shared this positive update on X (formerly Twitter), expressing that the young pacer is in good spirits following the minor shoulder procedure.

“Please remember him in your prayers. He will be back in action soon, InshAllah,” Sheikh added in his social media post.

In the outcome of the surgery, medical experts have advised the talented cricketer to take a well-deserved rest and focus on a rehabilitation program spanning four to six weeks before contemplating his return to the bowling crease.

Regrettably, due to this injury setback, Naseem Shah is expected to remain sidelined for a substantial period, likely extending to three to four months.

The injury initially occurred during Pakistan’s second match against India at the Asia Cup 2023 last month, specifically in the 46th over. On the reserve day designated for the game, Naseem Shah was forced to leave the field. Subsequently, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) issued an official statement confirming his unavailability for the remainder of the tournament.

It’s worth noting that Naseem Shah’s injury pertains to a muscle located just below his bowling shoulder and is not a recurrence of any previous shoulder ailments.

To replace Naseem Shah in Pakistan’s World Cup squad, the Pakistan Cricket Board called upon Hasan Ali, who last played an ODI match for Pakistan in 2022 against West Indies in Multan. Hasan Ali’s inclusion aims to strengthen the team’s pace bowling resources as they prepare for the highly anticipated World Cup tournament.
