Junaid Khan ruled out of World Cup

Tuesday, 03 February 2015 - 20:22

Pakistan fast bowler Junaid Khan has been ruled out of the World Cup after failing a fitness test.

Junaid had already pulled out of the ongoing ODI series against New Zealand due to a thigh injury sustained in training and despite undergoing a rigorous rehabilitation programme at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore, he is believed to have failed his test marginally.

Pakistan will announce a replacement in their 15-man squad tomorrow.
