Pakistan’s opener Imam-ul-Haq was on Thursday ruled out of the second Test against Australia after injuring his little finger during the Dubai match.
The 22-year-old left-hander injured his finger while fielding in Australia’s second innings on Thursday; the finger was later found to be fractured. “Imam has fractured the fifth finger of his left hand while fielding and has been ruled out of the second Test starting in Abu Dhabi from October 16,” a Pakistan Cricket Board spokesman said.
Imam scored a brilliant 76 and then 48 in the ongoing Test, which is the fourth of his Test career. He played his first Test in Ireland in May this year.
Imam will continued to be monitored before the three-match Twenty20 series against Australia starting in Abu Dhabi from October 24.
