Pakistani pacer will be replaced by right-handed batter Sadaf Shamas

LAHORE (Web Desk) - Due to a fracture in her right index finger, the right-arm fast bowler Diana Baig will not be able to continue with the team in the Australia T20 Internationals and the ICC Women s T20 World Cup in 2023.

Diana will be replaced by right-handed batter Sadaf Shamas who is a member of the reserves for the Australia T20I series and the ICC Women s T20 World Cup.

Diana was hurt on Friday during the third one-day international match between Australia and England as she attempted to grab a return catch on the last ball of the seventh over of Australia s batting. When Diana was brought to the nearby hospital, X-rays there verified the fracture.

Diana has been advised four weeks’ rest by the PCB Medical panel.
