Team Pakistan are off to the worst possible start as Yasir Shah has been ruled out with groin fracture. Captain Sarfaraz, has had a stellar run in T20s and also been relatively successful in white ball cricket, but he lost his 1st test series as captain. With it Pakistan also lost the unbeaten home run.

Now, with the challenging tour to England and Ireland on the horizon, he has received a telling blow as the leading bowler of the team has been ruled out due to injury. Yasir Shah was the difference between winning and losing in England during the 2016 tour. Yasir Shah, has had different injury problems in the recent past as he was on the brink of being dropped. He narrowly passed the 17.3 points selection criteria set by coach Micky Arthur.
One thing that may just go in favor of the team is that these matches will be played in the 1st half of the English summer. This may mean a lot of rain and green wicket. Pakistan may simply opt to go for 4 pacers and Harris Sohail or Mohammad Hafeez as their spinner. It may turn out to be one difficult tour for this inexperienced team.
