Umar Gul Questions Shadab Khan’s Injury Excuse in World Cup Game


In a closely fought World Cup game against South Africa, Pakistan’s Shadab Khan claimed an injury that left some doubts. During the match, Shadab Khan suffered a head injury while fielding, briefly leaving the field for medical assessment and then returning.

However, he was eventually replaced by Usama Mir due to a concussion.

Former Pakistan pacer Umar Gul expressed skepticism, suggesting that Shadab Khan might have used the injury as an excuse. Gul mentioned that questions arise when a player leaves the field, claims to have a concussion, and then chats with people outside. He believed that Shadab may have saved himself from a tight match.

Umar Gul, as a senior player, felt that in important games, players should be on the field.

He cited examples of players playing with broken hands to support their team. He disagreed with Shadab’s actions and didn’t believe the injury was serious.

Shadab’s replacement, Usama Mir, made a significant impact by taking two wickets, including the well-set Aiden Markram. Pakistan’s next World Cup match is against Bangladesh in Kolkata on October 31.
