Big Blow for Pakistan, Two Key Players Likely to Miss Semi-final Against Australia

Pakistan have won all the games in the ongoing T20 World Cup

Pakistan is set to play the semi-final against Australia on 11th November of the T20 World Cup. But, the men in green have suffered a big blow ahead of the crucial encounter. Their star player Mohammad Rizwan and Shoaib Malik are set to miss the high-profile game as they are down to flu.

Mohammad Rizwan is playing in the best batting form of his life. He has managed 214 runs in 5 games at a high strike rate. Also, he played a memorable knock of 79 runs off 55 balls against India and led his side to a memorable victory. On the other hand, Shoaib Malik managed a blistering 54 runs off 18 balls.

Pakistan star’s to miss semi-final against Australia

They have done a great job as individuals for their side and are equally responsible for making Pakistan qualify into the further stage of the T20 World Cup semi-final. However, it will be a really difficult task for the Men in Green to continue their winning momentum in the semi-final against Australia.

The absence of Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Rizwan will be a massive blow for the Pakistan Cricket Team. The duo went through RT-PCR Test and was tested COVID-19 negative. But the team management has asked them to rest.

Going with the current rumors if Rizwan and Malik are ruled out of the semi-final then Sarfaraz Ahmed and Haider Ali are expected to replace the star duo.

The Babar Azam-led Pakistan have won all their games in the ongoing T20 World Cup. They are defeatless in the mega-event and will look to continue their same form against Australia.
