LAHORE: Pakistan fast bowler Naseem Shah has contracted pneumonia and will stay in hospital overnight, missing his team's 5th T20I against England, here on Wednesday. The PCB announced that their in-house medical panel was monitoring pacer's health and the decision on his participation in the remainder of the ongoing series against England would be made after assessing his medical reports.
According to an ESPNcricinfo report, the latest development effectively rules Naseem out of the entirety of the Lahore leg of the series against England. It also makes him doubtful for the upcoming tour of New Zealand, which is due to get underway in Christchurch on October 7. IANS
