CRICKET: Junaid out of Australia series

Published:Thursday | October 9, 2014 | 10:29 AM

Fast bowler Junaid Khan has been ruled out of Pakistan's series against Australia in the United Arab Emirates, after injuring his knee during practice.



Junaid had twisted his knee during a fielding drill on the eve of the first One-Day International (ODI) and following an MRI scan was advised four to six weeks' rest.



As a result, he did not play in Tuesday's one-dayer, in which Pakistan stumbled to a 93-run defeat.



The time frame for recovery means he is out of both the remainder of the one-day series against Australia, as well as the Tests that follow.



The Pakistan Cricket Board has named Sohail Tanvir as his replacement for the second and third ODIs, which will be played on October 10 and 12.



The two-Test series begins on October 22.
