Islamabad, Jan. 10 (ANI): Pakistani all-rounder Abdul Razzaq has confirmed that he will stay out of cricket for a month due to an injury, and will miss the forthcoming One Day International series against Australia.
"I've sustained a fracture whilst batting," Pakpassion.net quoted Razzak, 30, as saying.
The hard-hitting batsman, who played an important role in Pakistan's Twenty20 World Cup victory, expressed disappointment at not being able to play against Australia.
"It was one of those out of the blue injuries, where I was batting and the ball smashed into my hand. I'm in plaster and have been advised rest for one month by the medical staff. It's very unfortunate, as I was really looking forward to playing in Australia for Pakistan if selected," he said.
Razzaq, who played all ODIs and Twenty/20 internationals against News Zealand, would be missed by his team-mates for his all round ability, particularly for his lower order big hits.(ANI)
