Pakistan pacer, Naseem Shah, underwent successful surgery for his injured shoulder today, sidelining him from the ICC World Cup 2023 set to commence in India. 

The right-arm fast bowler sustained the injury during a crucial encounter against India at the Asia Cup 2023 last month.

Medical examinations indicated a muscle injury in the shoulder region, unrelated to any previous shoulder issues. 

Alhamdulillah, I’m recovering well. Your prayers and well wishes have been my strength. Thank you all for your support. 🙏

The injury necessitated surgical intervention, which took place successfully. Post-surgery, Shah has been advised a period of rest lasting four to six weeks, followed by a gradual rehabilitation process.

During the 46th over of the crucial match against India, the 20-year-old had to leave the field on the reserve day due to an injury near his bowling shoulder. 

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) quickly verified the injury’s severity, resulting in Shah’s withdrawal from both the Asia Cup tournament and the 2023 World Cup. Hassan Ali was named as his replacement.

Naseem Shah’s recovery timeline indicates a prolonged absence from the cricketing scene, with an estimated return to action in three to four months.
