Hasan Ali, the pacer, has been cleared to train with the Pakistan cricket squad ahead of another pivotal match against Bangladesh on October 31 in Kolkata.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) medical panel regularly monitors the right-hand pacer and will also decide on his participation against Bangladesh.
Monday is the first day of training for the Pakistan cricket team in Kolkata as they get ready for the crucial encounter against Bangladesh.
Hasan had a fever the day before the match, which meant he was out of Pakistan’s suspenseful encounter against South Africa on October 27 in Chennai.
Pakistan has fared terribly in the ongoing ICC World Cup 2023, as evidenced by the fact that the Green Shirts have only won two matches—both against the comparatively inferior teams of Sri Lanka and the Netherlands.
Following that, for the first time in the big event’s history, Babar Azam’s squad lost four straight games against South Africa, Afghanistan, Australia, and India.
The Men in Green’s chances of making it to the semi-finals of the event have become more precarious as even if they win their final three games against Bangladesh, New Zealand, and England, they will still need to rely on the results of other teams, which is almost impossible.
